A short introductionDr. Oriti is a theoretical physicist working on quantum gravity (particularly on tensorial group field theories), loop quantum gravity, spin foam models, lattice quantum gravity, non-commutative geometry, gravitational physics, and fundamental cosmology. He pursues wider research activities in philosophy of science and foundations of physical theories, in particular foundations of quantum mechanics and philosophy of spacetime theories. He is a senior researcher and group leader at the Arnold Sommerfeld Center for Theoretical Physics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.
Panel discussion: the role of the observer, the double-slit experiment, the reality of physical laws, etc.
The participants of Essentia Foundation’s 2022 work conference, on the physics of first-person perspective, discuss whether there are objective physical laws out there in nature, whether the double-slit and similar experiments capture the essence of quantum mechanics, whether the scientific method demands inter-subjective confirmation, and what constitutes an observing agent under Quantum Bayesianism. This video completes our coverage of the 2022 conference. Stay tuned for news about the upcoming 2023 conference, which promises to be even more exciting!
There are no physical laws in the world
Physicist Dr. Daniele Oriti, from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, defends the view that physical laws are epistemic in nature, having no independent ontological status.
