1 This is a question left open here – it’s enough to point that, following Kim, many philosophical approaches of emergence concern the emergence of properties, even if physicists like Laughlin (2005) talk of the emergence of laws. I argued (Huneman 2008b) that one should first of all speak of emergent processes instead of emergence of properties, these ones being emergent only in a derivative way.

2 This idea of the "arrow of explanation", although metaphorical, is quite rich and had few influence in the following debates. A crucial question is to decide whether this direction is due to epistemic reasons (what is an explanation in general) or to empirical ones (the structure of our world…)

3 Let A and B be two types of properties: A supervenes on B for iff any difference in the properties of type A; there exists a difference in properties of type B. If A is thought and B is body, one immediately sees that this concept aims at formulating the fact that one mental state can be realized by several physical or brain states? For longer developments see Kim (1993).

4 Idea that any physical fact or event has a cause which is also physical – notwithstanding what other facts or causes may exist. This postulate is supposed to be inherent to modern science.

5 See Atay and Jost 2004, 18.

6 Also Bechtel and Richardson 1992.

7 See also Bar Yam (2004).

8 Humphreys (1997) is the first systematic investigations of epistemological problems raised by the generalized use of simulations in the science. Huneman (in press) tackled this problem in the framework of evolutionary explanations.

9 Even if this hypothesis turned out to be wrong, the fact that NP is strictly is strictly included in PSPACE entails that the fact of being PSPACE complete renders the prediction problem for non constant-free rules incommensurably more difficult for any cognitive capacity than this problem for constant-free rules, likely to be solved in polynomial time.

10 Demonstration in Huneman 2008b.

11On this loop see Sayama & Salzberg 2003, Sayama 1998.

12 For emergence in ABM according to my criteria, see Wilson, 2010.

13 A fine grained description of levels of counterfactual dependency, defining modes of regularity and prediction, is done in Huneman (2010).
