Huggett starts with some words on how to take his talk. It started out as a talk for philosophers who have only been exposed to pop sci presentations of string theory, to get them to not be afraid of it. It’s a bit like a travel log from an explorer to a strange country…
There will be 3 parts to the talk:
- The formalism
- General Relativity from String theory
For physicists, the hope is that this talk will help understand how philosophers are likely to think about ST (string theory, from here on), what they find interesting, etc.
