The Model-Theoretic Approach in the Philosophy of Science

Philosophy of Science 57 (2):248 - 265 (1990)
Abstract
An introduction to the model-theoretic approach in the philosophy of science is given and it is argued that this program is further enhanced by the introduction of partial structures. It is then shown that this leads to a natural and intuitive account of both "iconic" and mathematical models and of the role of the former in science itself.
