A Model of the Universe: Space-Time, Probability, and Decision

Storrs McCall

Abstract

This book presents a philosophical theory of the nature of the universe based on a new model of its space-time structure. The book shows how his model illuminates a broad range of subjects, including causation, probability, quantum mechanics, identity, and free will, and argues that the fact that the model throws light on such a large number of problems constitutes strong evidence that the universe is as the model portrays it.

Keywords: philosophical theory, universe, model, space-time structure
