La editorial de la revista afirma:
The articles by Lechuga and Fowler penetrate deeply into science and how Zubiri’s thought fits well with it, especially contemporary science, at the cutting edge. Lechuga looks at the developments in science and points out that in many ways science is still mired in Aristotelian ways of thinking, especially in terms of substance, when Zubiri’s notion of substantivity is a better fit. Fowler discusses Quantum Field Theory and how Zubiri’s ideas are able to handle the many new ideas there, such as virtual particles, symmetry, negative energy, negative momentum, and the blurring of the distinction between mathematics and physics. Most earlier philosophies are unable to come to grips with these new ideas—ideas that have been forced upon us by careful observation and experimentation with the most advanced equipment in the world, such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva.
