Preview

This chapter presents a promising way of defending the determination of value by nature, while resisting reduction. Recent developments in both property theory and value theory help clarify a thesis about the relation between irreducibility and multiple realizability which has not been as clearly articulated as it can be. This in turn will help to establish and illustrate the possibility of supervenience without reduction.

Keywords: nature; reduction; property theory; value theory; irreducibility; realizability
