Dissertation: Overview

Research Question
In Ontic Structural Realism, one of the primary objections to the framework is the relations-without-relata objection.
  1. Can there be relations without relata?
  2. If yes, then how do you explain the ontological status of objects which populate our daily life? Specifically, how can we conceive of such objects as nodes in a supposed structure?
  3. If no, then how do you resolve the problem of theory change without recourse to a structuralist framework?
