My work on Feynman diagrams started with Jim Talbert's senior thesis and a visit at the University of Bielefeld during the summer of 2012. Subsequent work took place within the context of the DFG-research unit “Epistemology of the LHC,” during my Sabbatical at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy, and it was finished during a stay at the Karlsruhe Institute for Technology. I am deeply indebted to members of the respective groups and to all those commenting on my paper at the 2015 Oberwolfach meeting. I am also indebted to David Rowe and Adrian Wüthrich for comments on a previous version of this article.
