What is “fundamental”?

Abstract: Our collective views regarding the question “what is fundamental?” are continually evolving. These ontological shifts in what we regard as fundamental are largely driven by theoretical advances (“what can we calculate?”), and experimental advances (“what can we measure?”). Rarely (in my view) is epistemology the fundamental driver; more commonly epistemology reacts (after a few decades) to what is going on in the theoretical and experimental zeitgeist.
