Scientific Understanding and Representation: Modeling in the Physical Sciences is published by Routledge today!
This book assembles cutting-edge scholarship on scientific understanding, scientific representation, and their delicate interplay. Featuring several articles in an engaging ‘critical conversation’ format, the volume integrates discussions about understanding and representation with perennial issues in the philosophy of science, including the nature of scientific knowledge, idealizations, scientific realism, scientific inference, and scientific progress.
It was wonderful working with all the amazing authors and my co-editors Insa Lawler and Kareem Khalifa!
