How Simulations can Fail to Explain
A computer simulation is explanatory only if it “closely fits reality” that is if it is adequate, stable and non trivial.
If a computer simulation is not empirically adequate, it does not explain
If a computer simulation is not stable, we cannot know whether it explains
If it is not descriptively appropriate, it
“misses the point”
