Instead, social scientists should recognize that material, non-individualistic entities determine the social world . This book defends the prospects for a science of society

Instead, social scientists should recognize that material, non-individualistic entities determine the social world, as well. First, I argue that Epstein’s argument both begs the question against his opponents and is not sufficiently charitable. This book defends the prospects for a science of society. It argues that behind the diverse methods of the natural sciences lies a common core of scientific rationality that the social sciences can and sometimes do achieve. It also argues that good social science must be in part about large-scale social structures and processes and thus that methodological individualism is misguided.

Experimental modeling in biology involves the use of living organisms (not necessarily so-called . But, despite the relevance of models and inference in scientific practice, these concepts still remain contro-versial in many respects

I argue here that experimental modeling is a bona fide form of scientific modeling that plays an epistemic role that is distinct from that of ordinary biological experiments. But, despite the relevance of models and inference in scientific practice, these concepts still remain contro-versial in many respects. The attempt to understand the ways models and infer-ences are made basically opens two roads ) produce an analy-sis of the role that models and inferences play in science.

Models are of central importance in many scientific contexts.

First published Mon Feb 27, 2006; substantive revision Mon Jun 25, 2012. Models are of central importance in many scientific contexts. Models of data play a crucial role in confirming theories because it is the model of data and not the often messy and complex raw data that we compare to a theoretical prediction. The construction of a data model can be extremely complicated. It requires sophisticated statistical techniques and raises serious methodological as well as philosophical questions.
