For further development, see Karlis Podnieks in ResearchGate. How could we recognize truth, if we only have models, means of model-building, and the history of their evolution? Where is the truth in the cloud of models – ...
Philosophy of Modeling: Some Neglected Pages of History
The work done in the philosophy of modeling by Vaihinger (1876), Craik (1943), Rosenblueth and Wiener (1945), Apostel (1960), Minsky (1965), Klaus (1966) and Stachowiak (1973) is still almost completely neglected in the ...
Explanation and Understanding in a Model-Based Model of Cognition
This article is an experiment. Consider a minimalist model of cognition (models, means of model-building and history of their evolution). In this model, explanation could be defined as a means allowing to advance: production ...
Towards a General Definition of Modeling
What is a model? Surprisingly, in philosophical texts, this question is asked (sometimes), but almost never – answered. Instead of a general answer, usually, some classification of models is considered. The broadest possible ...
