Is the place of modelling nowadays in the sciences and even more in techniques wrongfully assumed? Do mathematics, the basis for the models developed by engineers, guarantee a useful and beneficial representation of reality? What savings can supposedly be made by modelling? And what decisions?
These are just a few of the questions on modelling addressed by this work on its cognitive nature and its social issues.
