There is some disagreement within the philosophy of science as to the status and compositional nature of models, which can be seen as fictions comparable to literary fictions (Roman Frigg), as semi-autonomous technologies of investigation which are partially constrained by both a set of abstract theoretical principles and the empirical world (Margaret Morrison), or as epistemic weapons in the knowledge-wars within the space of scientific distributed cognition (Lorenzo Magnani). Since it is an aspect of their function to synthesize and make intelligible information on the sides of the scientific and manifest images of the world, there is a potential to understand the capacity of art to operate as a mode of modelization.
