Simon Deichsel studied Philosophy and Economics in Bayreuth and Bologna. In 2006, he obtained the degree of a Master of Arts (graded with distinction) with a thesis about model-platonism in economics. His specialisation in philosophy of science and institutional economics set the stage for his Ph. D.-project in philosophy at the University of Bremen where he got a position as research assistant of Prof. Dr. Dagmar Borchers in 2006. Simon's Ph. D. thesis deals with the question how economic models can be adequately evaluated when classic empiricist standards are hard to apply.
