On certain a priori claims in the foundations of spacetime theories

Abstract:

I critique three a priori claims present in the literature on the foundations of spacetime theories:---

1. Spacetime structure has is chronogeometric significance necessarily.

2. The only candidates for representing physical quantities are objects which can be specified in a coordinate-independent manner.

3. Symmetry- and duality-related models of physical theories may be regarded ab initio as being physically equivalent.
