SECOND CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS WORKSHOP SCIENTIFIC CONTENTS: FICTIONS OR ABSTRACT OBJECTS?

Call for contributions
 
Workshop
SCIENTIFIC CONTENTS:
FICTIONS OR ABSTRACT OBJECTS?
 
 
University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain)
January 2017, 26-27
 
 
Along the last century there has been a lot of discussion on models and scientific theories regarding questions such as: what are the referents of theoretical terms? how can highly idealized theories be empirically tested if some of their assumptions are known to be strictly false? what kind of entities are scientific models and how are they related to the world? what, for instance, is an ideal pendulum and how is related to a real pendulum? The discussion has been enriched in the last decades by the debate on fictions and abstract objects. Can models be considered as fictions or more as genuine abstract objects? If theories are fictions, how are they related to the real entities of the actual world? Nominalists like Hartry Field have tried to convince us that the mathematical entities used in scientific theories can be dispensed of, but can we dispense with all kinds of abstract objects in science? In the present workshop we want to discuss all these questions by exploring the alleged advantages and disadvantages of the different approaches that are being discussed nowadays, including theoretical accounts that maintain a realist position regarding abstract objects (i.e. Zalta’s abstract objects theory). Not only models and theories are planned to be considered, but also the referents of theoretical terms. By pointing to all these different topics from the perspective of the current discussions on fictionalism and abstract objects, we aim at contributing to the more recent debates on the metaphysics and the epistemology of scientific theories.
