Sample text

There is a widespread and deeply entrenched view among scientists and philosophers that the distortions effected by idealization and abstraction are both necessary and virtuous. Many people who hold this view see the value of models as merely instrumental. Others take the stronger and more philosophically challenging position that the good done by these aspects of scientific modeling has a genuinely cognitive character. The distinction between instrumental and cognitive (or alethic) value is less an algorithmically exact one than an attractive expository convenience7 .

Rosales material, while comprehensible to the theorist, is costly to a fault to process. The other is one in which the complexity of a fully detailed account of a target phenomenon is incomprehensible, even to experts. Incomprehensibility, in turn, attaches to yet another pair of cases. In some situations, unfiltered explanations occasion informational overload, hence are too much for the theorist “to get his mind around”. In others, the informational surfeit is too much for the theory’s mathematics to “get itself around”.
