Science, Identity, Fractality

(p.1) Introduction
Theory of Identities
Alyosha Edlebi
Columbia University Press

This chapter sets out the stakes of the book, arguing that contemporary philosophy has been dominated by various notions (multiplicity, singularity, etc.) that have obscured the position of identities. It goes on to explain philosophy’s resistance to the concept of identity and to science in general. It calls for a reevaluation of the relations between science and philosophy, and for a new conception of science based on a generalization of the scientific notions of fractality and chaos.

Keywords:   singularity, identity, multiplicity, philosophy, science, fractality
