Abstract

A Model Discipline continues the long-running debate on the role of formal, mathematical models in political science and whether purely theoretical work should be published in top journals. Benjamin Lauderdale finds the larger points in the book compelling despite disagreeing with its arguments on what should actually be demanded of theoretical models.
