Who Made the Laws of Nature? by Marianne Freiberger.

I was a bad physics student at school. Not only did I have no physical intuition whatsoever, I also didn’t believe most of it. How, I wondered, can we possibly claim that nature “obeys” the “laws” that we have written down in text books?

It turns out that in my ignorance I had something resembling a point. While physicists are busy coming up with equations that express the laws of nature, philosophers are thinking about what a law of nature actually is. And they don’t all agree.
