* Workshop description *
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. Despite the fact that how a phenomenon is
represented has far-reaching ramifications for how it is understood, the
literatures on scientific understanding and scientific representation are
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.
The conference will be held in honor of Margie Morrison
Submissions that engage with her work are encouraged.
