The Nature of Natural Laws

Abstract [en]

The problem of distinguishing between laws and accidental generalisations is discussed.Taking for granted that some laws are derivable from others, the basic problem is to say what a fundamental law, i.e., a law that is not derived from other laws, is. It is argued that there are different categories of fundamental laws. Those in one category are best understood as implicit definitions of theoretical terms, those in another as consequences of demands of maximal objectivity.
