Who’s afraid of Nagelian reduction?

Dizadji-Bahmani, Foad, Frigg, Roman and Hartmann, Stephan (2010) Who’s afraid of Nagelian reduction? Erkenntnis, 73 (3). pp. 393-412. ISSN 0165-0106

Abstract

We reconsider the Nagelian theory of reduction and argue that, contrary to a widely held view, it is the right analysis of intertheoretic reduction. The alleged difficulties of the theory either vanish upon closer inspection or turn out to be substantive philosophical questions rather than knock-down arguments.
