Overview

The volume is based on the papers that were presented at the international conferenceModel-BasedReasoninginScienceandMedicine (MBR’06 China), held at Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, P. R. China in July 2006. The previous volume Model-Based Reasoning in Scienti?c Discovery, edited by L. Magnani, N. J. Nersessian, and P. Thagard (Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers, New York, 1999; Chinese edition, China Science and Techn- ogy Press, Beijing, 2000), was based on the papers presented at the ?rst “model-based reasoning” international conference, held at the University of Pavia, Pavia, Italy in December 1998. Other two volumes were based on the papers presented at the second “model-based reasoning” international c- ference, held at the same place in May 2001: Model-Based Reasoning. S- enti?c Discovery, Technological Innovation, Values, edited by L. Magnani and N. J. Nersessian (Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers, New York, 2002) and Logical and Computational Aspects of Model-Based Reasoning, edited by L. Magnani, N. J. Nersessian, and C. Pizzi (Kluwer Academic, Dordrecht, 2002). Another volume Model-Based Reasoning in Science and Engineering, edited by L. Magnani (College Publications, London, 2006), was based on the papers presented at the third “model-based reasoning” international conf- ence, held at the same place in December 2004. The presentations given at the conference explored how scienti?c thi- ing uses models and explanatory reasoning to produce creative changes in theories and concepts. Some addressed the problem of model-based reasoning in technology, and stressed the issue of technological innovation and medical reasoning.
