Publisher: London ; New Delhi ; New York ; Sydney Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc [2015]
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
In this groundbreaking book, Manuel Delanda analyzes all the different genres of simulation (from cellular automata and generic algorithms to neural nets and multi-agent systems) as a means to conceptualize the possibility spaces associated with casual (and other) capacities. Simulations allow us to stage actual interactions among a population of agents and to observe the emergent wholes that result from those  Read more...

Publisher Synopsis

The topic of this clearly written and well-documented text is the philosophical concept of emergence... Imaginative defences of philosophical realism are certainly to be applauded, and given the Read more...

   schema:description "In this groundbreaking book, Manuel Delanda analyzes all the different genres of simulation (from cellular automata and generic algorithms to neural nets and multi-agent systems) as a means to conceptualize the possibility spaces associated with casual (and other) capacities. Simulations allow us to stage actual interactions among a population of agents and to observe the emergent wholes that result from those interactions. Simulations have become as important as mathematical models in theoretical science. As computer power and memory have become cheaper they have migrated to the desktop, where they now play the role that small-scale experiments used to play. A philosophical examination of the epistemology of simulations is needed to cement this new role, underlining the consequences that simulations may have for materialist philosophy itself. This remarkably clear philosophical discussion of a rapidly growing field, from a thinker at the forefront of research at the interface of science and the humanities, is a must-read for anyone interested in the philosophy of technology and the philosophy of science at all levels." ;
