Workshop “New Work on Explanation and Understanding”

1 May 2015


Analyzing the concepts of scientific explanation and understanding is at the heart of philosophy of science and related areas in epistemology and metaphysics. This workshop aims at improving the analysis of these concepts in the context of novel (or at least underappreciated) examples including simple models and toy models, idealized models in econophysics, and renormalization group theory.
