Calculated surprises : a philosophy of computer simulation

Author: Johannes Lenhard
Publisher: New York, NY, United States of America : Oxford University Press, [2019]
Series: Oxford studies in philosophy of science.

Summary:
Simulation modeling, the core thesis of Calculated Surprises, is transforming the established conception of mathematical modeling in fundamental ways. These transformations feed back into philosophy of science, opening up new perspectives on longstanding oppositions. The book integrates historical features with both practical case studies and broad reflections on science and technology.
