Live blogging: Vidotto

Judging from the discussion paper (here) and the slides, Vidotto’s talk will argue that in LQG, the ancient dispute between substantivalists and relationalists gets resolved by being dissolved: space(time) is a real quantum field, but quantum theory is inherently relational, and moreover the classical gravitational field (= spacetime) emerges from a discrete, i.e. atomistic, basis.  Her talk will represent a Rovellian philosophy and approach to quantum gravity.
