Explaining Science: A Cognitive Approach. Science and its Conceptual Foundations Ronald N. theoretical foundations of complexity in production, autonomy and cyber-physical production systems

Explaining Science: A Cognitive Approach. theoretical foundations of complexity in production, autonomy and cyber-physical production systems. In addition, selected already existing methods to master complexity are presented. The second part of the paper starts with an introduction into measuring the degree of autonomy in production processes which is the basis for the following simulation-based analysis.

Debate over the nature of science has recently moved from the halls of academia into the public sphere, where it has taken shape as the "science wars. At issue is the question of whether scientific knowledge is objective and universal or socially mediated, whether scientific truths are independent of human values and beliefs. Ronald Giere is a philosopher of science who has been at the forefront of this debate from its inception, and Science without Laws offers a much-needed mediating perspective on an increasingly volatile line of inquiry.

Giere's "Explaining Science" is meant to give a naturalistic account of science. Traditional philosophy of science pursued the project of the foundation of science. Naturalists maintain that the only purpose of philosophy of science is to explain science. The title of Giere's book is, then, programmatic. The book is intended to cover a wide subject and throughout his sections handle with topics like the naturalization of philosophy of science, the scientific realism (where Giere defends a form of constructivistic realism) and scientific judgement (where the author suggests the use of bounded rationality models as a framework for the explanation of the scientific judgement). The book is very ambitious but the arguments in it are not always well developed and persuasive. For example, the use of bounded rationality models of decision in the philosophy of science can be a very interesting insight, but this requires a strong analysis of the social mechanisms that mediate the choices of the individuals (bounded rationality requires an organization). Giere arrest himself too frequently only on the surface of this problems. But often initiators are compelled to give only hints, and this is only the beginning of a beautiful friendship between philosophy of science and science that eventually will lead to the science of science so frequently proposed.
