Philosophy of Ergalics


Clay Morrison (who has a doctorate in Philosophy) and Rick Snodgrass have been working on a number of philosophical aspects of ergalics, including situating ergalics among models of science, developing an ontology of ergalic theories, understanding the role of simulation in ergalics, exploring whether the methodology of hypothesis testing is entirely adequate for testing theories of dynamic systems, and identifying the sources of endurance of ergalic theories.
