Eric Winsberg seeks to answer these questions in Science in the Age of Computer Simulation. Scrutinizing these issue with a philosophical lens, Winsberg explores the impact of simulation on such issues as the nature of scientific evidence; the role of values in science; the nature and role of fictions in science; and the relationship between simulation and experiment, theories and data, and theories at different levels of description. Science in the Age of Computer Simulation will transform many of the core issues in philosophy of science, as well as our basic understanding of the role of the. I read this book without having any prior familiarity with the philosophy of science and limited exposure to philosophy in general. As such, making it through each page was fairly painful.

During the past decade there has been a unique synergy between theory, experiment and simulation in Soft Matter Physics. Whilst many numerical predictions concerning the.

Engineering & Computer Science 188: Ethics in the Age of Technology. In the book’s brief and concise concluding chapter, Winsberg rejects the conservative position according to which computer simulation would be nothing more than theory-application. Department of Engineering & Computer Science. University of California, Davis. On the other hand, Winsberg also avoids asserting firmly the progressive position according to which computer simulations would trail-blaze a completely new path to scientific knowledge production: ‘‘Is it true that simulations are, after all, a particular species of experiment?

Eric Winsberg (born February 4, 1968) is an American philosopher who is a professor of philosophy at the University of South Florida. He is especially interested in the role of computer simulations in the physical sciences. His work in the philosophy of climate science specifically relates to its application in science policy and ethics

Since computers have equipped us with the new possibility of programming and executing computer simulations (or software . In the new universe of discourse on this topic, the following philosophical positions can be conceived

Since computers have equipped us with the new possibility of programming and executing computer simulations (or software simulations) as quasi-experiments in silicio, a new dimension has possibly been added to the hitherto bi-polar spectrum between rationalism and empirism.

Computer simulation was first pioneered as a scientific tool in meteorology and nuclear physics in the period following World War II, but it has grown rapidly to become indispensible in a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including astrophysics, high-energy physics, climate science, engineering, ecology, and economics. Digital computer simulation helps study phenomena of great complexity, but how much do we know about the limits and possibilities of this new scientific practice? How do simulations compare to traditional experiments? And are they reliable? Eric Winsberg seeks to answer these questions in Science in the Age of Computer Simulation.

Scrutinizing these issue with a philosophical lens, Winsberg explores the impact of simulation on such issues as the nature of scientific evidence; the role of values in science; the nature and role of fictions in science; and the relationship between simulation and experiment, theories and data, and theories at different levels of description. Science in the Age of Computer Simulation will transform many of the core issues in philosophy of science, as well as our basic understanding of the role of the digital computer in the sciences.
