Computational methods have become the dominant technique in many areas of science. This book contains the first systematic philosophical account of these new methods and their consequences for scientific method. This book will be of interest to philosophers of science and to anyone interested in the role played by computers in modern science.

Paul Humphreys is chairman of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Virginia. A former editor of Synthese and a founding editor of Foundations of Science, his research interests include computer modeling, probability theory, strategic reasoning, emergence, causation, and explanation.
