Abstract

The main research programs in quantum gravity tend to suggest in one way or another that most (if not all) spacetime structures are not fundamental. At the same time, work in quantum foundations highlights fundamental features that are in tension with any straightforward space- time understanding. This paper aims to explore the little investigated but potentially fruitful links between these two fields.
