The Significance of Emergence
I argue that the metaphysics of the traditional doctrine of emergence is the same as that of non-reductive physicalism; but the doctrines differ in their explanatory ambitions. I am now (2006) not so sure that this is the right way to think about the difference between emergentism and non-reductive physicalism, and I hope to give a better account in some forthcoming work.Article; written in 1997
