Epistemology of Simulation Models


I have long been interested on epistemological issues regarding complex adaptive systems and the role of simulation models in science and philosophy. There is a whole epistemic ecology of models in science and I am particularly interested on «conceptual simulation models» (typical of Artificial Life) where there is rarelly an empirical correlation between the model and any particular natural phenomenon. These models are not models of natural systems directly but rather models of principles and concepts that constitute biological and cognitive theories. As such, their epistemic status is somewhere in between theory and philosophy producing epistemic tools to understand complex systems.
