Actually there is a third qualm, but I am not equipped to enforce it by means of argument: I have heard at least one respected physicist aver that “physics is finished,” meaning that even microphysics is already empirically adequate and its physical ontology, its ontology of substances, is reasonably well understood; the remaining projects of microphysics – positing superstrings, constructing a unified field theory and the like – are only matters of interpreting and mathematizing the physical ontology.
Why, for example, can’t the physical be identified in terms of current physics or some future or ideal physics? The answer is that the argument, as stated so far, does not logically preclude these options. 5 As I understand him, Chomsky has not given (nor does he think he has given) a logical demonstration of the conclusion he suggests. Rather, he is laying down a challenge to physicalists, a challenge to which physicalists have not yet adequately responded. , that there is no relevant a priori conception of the physical and that given the open and evolving character of scientific theory there is no definite a posteriori conception).
