Laws of nature

I’m giving just four second-year lectures on the philosophy of science this term, revisiting Lakatos (I’m a long-time fan). Last year I talked instead about laws of nature; rather to my surprise I found myself taking exactly the opposite line from that I used to take in supervisions, and warmed to a wild Humean subjectivism. Re-reading the notes from the lectures on laws they seemed at least provoking enough to be worth handing out again to this year’s class. I don’t promise that I believe any of this stuff: I was just interested to see if you can play the game the Humean way.
