Abstract

According to nineteenth century classical physics, reality is described in purely physical terms, and is deterministic: the world is described in terms of mathematical properties attached to space-time points, and the future is completely determined by the past, by virtue of mathematical conditions on these properties. This formerly-believed feature of nature is called the “Causal Closure of the Physical”).
