The analysis of actual practice of scientific research within contemporary methodology and philosophy of science demonstrated the central role played there by models and metaphors. Pawel Zeidler’s book, Models and Metaphors as the Research Tools for Science, puts forward an analysis of the basic reasons for this breakthrough and points to the major consequences that resulted from it, both for scientific practise and for the methodological and philosophical reflexion on these practices.

Pawel Zeidler is Professor of Philosophy in the Institute of Philosophy at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan.
