Description

This chapter explores some of the ways in which computer modeling and simulation (CMS) can help build epistemological bridges across the sciences and the humanities, one of the main tasks for which the BBA was constructed. It focuses in particular on the role that reverse engineering and predictive processing are meant to play in achieving consilience and demonstrates the usefulness of some of the conceptual practices and technological tools within the field of CMS for clarifying and facilitating that task.
