Metaphysics I 57
Metaphysics / Science / Barrow: metaphysical conditions under which we as effectively as possible can proceed from the simple experience of the world to knowledge: 1. There is an outer world 2. The world is ultimately rational (not A and non-A non-simultaneously) - 3. The world can be locally explored , without losing its essential structure - 4. The elementary variables have no free will - 5. The separation of events and their perception is a harmless simplification - 6. In nature, there are regularities, and these are predictable in some ways - 7. There are space and time - 8. The world can be described mathematically - 9. These assumptions apply equally anywhere, anytime - I 58 holism / Barrow: if it were true, 3. would not apply.
