Models and Metaphors as Research Tools in Science

A Philosophical, Methodological and Semiotic Study of Science

By Pawel Zeidler

The analysis of actual practice of scientific research within contemporary methodology and philosophy of science demonstrates the central role played by models and metaphors. This book puts forward an analysis of the basic reasons for this breakthrough and points to the major consequences that resulted from it, both for scientific practice and for the methodological and philosophical reflection on these practices.
