What is the origin of the concept of a law of nature? How much does it owe to theology and metaphysics? To what extent do the laws of nature permit contingency? Are there exceptions to the laws of nature? Is it possible to give a reductive analysis of lawhood, or is it a primitive?

Laws of Nature spans the history of philosophy and of science, contemporary metaphysics, and contemporary philosophy of science.
