- 125 Downloads
The purpose of this chapter is to elucidate the two notions of model that occur in factual (natural or social) science. These concepts are those of model object, or schema, and theoretical model, or specific theory. A clarification of these notions is needed in view of the ambiguity of the term ‘model’ and of the merry confusion, prevailing in the current scientific and philosophic literature, among various senses of this word.
