Fifth Annual Scientific Understanding and Representation (SURe) Workshop
Friday May 19, 2023 - Saturday May 20, 2023
Representations play a central role in scientists’ understanding of the world. From mathematical models to diagrams, different representations in highly varied contexts yield diverse insights across the physical, biological, and social sciences. Although how a phenomenon is represented has far-reaching ramifications for how it is understood, the literatures on scientific understanding and scientific representation remain largely independent of each other. The time is ripe to foster greater synergy between these two areas in the philosophy of science, as they face complementary problems—and hold the promise of complementary solutions.
