Mathematics as a Tool: Tracing New Roles of Mathematics in the Sciences

Mathematics as a Tool: Tracing New Roles of Mathematics in the Sciences (Boston Studies in the Philosophy and History of Science) by Johannes Lenhard
English | 2 May 2017 | ISBN: 3319544683 | 286 Pages | PDF | 3.14 MB

This book puts forward a new role for mathematics in the natural sciences. In the traditional understanding, a strong viewpoint is advocated, on the one hand, according to which mathematics is used for truthfully expressing laws of nature and thus for rendering the rational structure of the world. In a weaker understanding, many deny that these fundamental laws are of an essentially mathematical character, and suggest that mathematics is merely a convenient tool for systematizing observational knowledge.
