Philosophers and social scientists have begun to realize that science, in the words of Carrier and Nordmann, has increasingly shifted its focus from “epistemic or truth-oriented” research to “application-dominated” research. “Science is viewed today as an essentially practical endeavor” (Carrier and Nordmann 2011, 1) and should be considered in the context of its application. In accordance with this re-orienting of science, research on modeling has also changed. Still considering models as genuinely scientific tools, philosophers and social scientists promoted the “practice turn” that suggests a sharper focus on pragmatic issues and the performative and productive role of modeling. Application of models for the resolution of practice-related problems is viewed as an extension of science.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Dirksen, Vanessa</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2015-03-25T10:50:01Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Svetlova, Ekaterina</dc:contributor> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>Models at Work - Models in Decision Making</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
