What is the Truth of Simulation?
To understand the epistemological meaning of simulation, it does not suffice to interpret simulation practice and theory in the framework of philosophy of science alone. Theory, experiment, measurement and observation are important activities of the scientific method. But what regards an epistemological interpretation of simulation, philosophical truth theories allow gaining additional insights. This paper discusses philosophical truth theories â€“ e.g. the correspondence, coherence and consensus theory â€“ and relates them to simulation practice and methodology, focussing on validation.
