Project: A model-based approach to problems in the philosophy of social science
- project duration
- 01-OCT-06 – 30-SEP-08
- Recent evolutions in the philosophy of science concerning the nature of models bring new possibilities for applied research on models in social science, i.c. economics and the political sciences. My goal is not only to explore them, but also to use them in constructing new views on traditional problems in philosophy of science, like realism, reductionism, laws and explanation.
