Methods of Causal Inference and Scientific Representation (MCISR) is a pioneering research group in Spain, founded in 2004 and based at Complutense University of Madrid. Its members conduct research on a variety of topics within the philosophy and history of science, with a special focus on the methodology and metaphysics of causation and probability, modelling and idealization, and a number of topics in the foundations of the physical and biological sciences.
MCISR members are involved in several research projects. The activities of the group aim at consolidating research links with other international groups working on the diverse aspects of causal inference, philosophy of probability, and the foundations of science, as well as on topics related to scientific representation and modelling. MCISR is also part of the following research networks:
