The Structure of Interdisciplinary ScienceRepresentation

The Structure of Interdisciplinary Science: Representation [In this chapter, the required philosophical foundation for a representation-based account of interdisciplinarity is explicated. Focus is mostly on the work of Ronald Giere, Stephen Downes, Michael Weisberg, Bas van Fraassen, and Martin Thomson-Jones. Through discussing the positions of these philosophers, an enriched version of Giere’s account of scientific representation is developed. The chapter ends by summing up why this constitutes a good foundation for an approach-based framework.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[In this chapter, the required philosophical foundation for a representation-based account of interdisciplinarity is explicated. Focus is mostly on the work of Ronald Giere, Stephen Downes, Michael Weisberg, Bas van Fraassen, and Martin Thomson-Jones. Through discussing the positions of these philosophers, an enriched version of Giere’s account of scientific representation is developed. The chapter ends by summing up why this constitutes a good foundation for an approach-based framework.]
