Towards a Notion of Explanation in Complexity Science

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract Studies of complexity using computer simulation seem to have taken
philosophers of science by surprise, and within this sphere the area of
[scientific] explanation is no exception. This article explores challenges
and potential fruitful contributions between complexity science and
philosophy regarding the epistemic notion of explanation, which turns
out to be the introduction of a broad research agenda for philosophy of
science.
