Philosophy of Science

This page contains links to talks and papers in philosophy of science. My main interest has been in the area of modelling of condensed matter systems, concerning in particular understanding the (unreasonable) success of highly schematized models to describe collective phenomena, in the description of phase transitions and critical phenomena and in resolving the apparent contradiction that statistical mechanics requires infinite systems to capture phase transitions and critical phenomena if describted in terms of singularities, whereas real systems are obviously finite, which has plagued philosophers and physicists alike for for some time. I have also been interested in the role of collective information processsing in and of societies, and in particular with the implications of the existence of fundamental limits of information processing capabilities, as discussed in Neural Networks Theory, in the context of information processing in societies.
