A “Participatory universe” of J. A. Wheeler as an intentional correlate of embodied subjects and an example of purposiveness in physics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

This paper continues to investigate the role of human subjectivity and its delimiters in articulating the universe in physics and cosmology. As a case study, we reflect upon the complex of ideas of the so called Participatory universe by later J. A. Wheeler. The objective of the paper is to explicate the role of the human agency as a centre of disclosure and manifestation of the universe as well the as teleology of scientific representation of the world implied by the intrinsic purposiveness of human actions.
