About this videoRuntime: 20 mins
Ross Thompson continues his talk by discussing the relationship between materialism, structural realism, and various philosophical perspectives on the nature of reality. He contrasts materialism and structural realism, suggesting the latter involves a mathematical universe, and the implications of this for truth and completeness. Structural realism is questioned as either a radical form of materialism or a move towards idealism. He concludes by presenting five perspectives on the universe's nature: necessity, multiverse, contingence, God-grounded, and participatory.
