Two Papers on Modeling

I have recently posted two preprint versions of papers that approach modeling from (hopefully) complementary directions. The first, "Modeling Reality", argues that model autonomy and model pluralism are consistent with a limited form of scientific realism. The second, "Towards a Philosophy of Applied Mathematics", argues that applied mathematics is a distinct area of mathematics that deserves further scrutiny by philosophers of mathematics.

Comments are welcome as both papers are part of my larger project!
