Namely, I propose to explicate ontological emergence in terms of the notion of novel reference', and of an account of interpretation as a map from theory to world. I then construe ontological emergence as the `failure of the interpretation to mesh'' with an appropriate linkage map between theories. Ontological emergence can obtain between theories that have the same extension but different intensions, and between theories that have both different extensions and intensions. I illustrate the framework in three examples: the emergence of spontaneous magnetisation in a ferromagnet, the emergence of masslessness, and the emergence of space, in specific models of physics. The account explains {\it why} ontological emergence is independent of reduction: namely, because emergence is primarily concerned with adequate interpretation, while the sense of reduction that is relevant here is concerned with inter-theoretic relations between uninterpreted theories. dc.publisher Springer Verlag dc.rights All rights reserved dc.title Towards a Theory of Emergence for the Physica Sciences dc.type Article prism.publicationName European Journal for Philosophy of Science dc.identifier.doi 10.17863/CAM.43079 rioxxterms.version AM rioxxterms.licenseref.uri http://www.rioxx.net/licenses/all-rights-reserved rioxxterms.type Journal Article/Review cam.orpheus.counter 92 rioxxterms.freetoread.startdate 2022-08-20
