Possible Dualisms in Physics:

Wave-Particle dualism

Expositions:
Course notes at Sussex,

Particle or Wave? at Queen Mary College, London,

Some Basic Ideas about Quantum Mechanics at Exeter.

 

Potential-Actual dualism

Fields of Possibilities:

Real-Virtual dualism & Multiple Generative Levels

I J Thompson at Surrey:
Derivative Dispositions and Multiple Generative Levels
Book chapter: Two stages of Propensity?
Talk: What does the Wave Function Describe?
Multiple Levels 'Inside' Quantum Physics? (notes)
 

Pregeometric-Geometric dualism
