Part of the New Directions in the Philosophy of Science book series (NDPS)


I will provide a summary of the books content. In the three main chapters of this book, I analysed the construction, diagnosis and evaluation of models in chaos theory. Using the method of rational reconstruction, the book aimed to analyse each of the three stages of modelling in detail. To my knowledge, this is the first such modelling-centred analysis of chaos theory.
