Description

Extending Ourselves contains the first systematic philosophical account of new computer methods for empirical scientific research, and how they require a different approach to scientific method. Paul Humphreys draws a parallel between the ways in which such computational methods have enhanced our abilities to mathematically model the world, and the more familiar ways in which scientific instruments have expanded our access to the empirical world.
