Wolfgang Balzer, born in 1947, graduated in mathematical logic and philosophy of science at the University of Munich. In 1982 he became professor for logic and philosophy of science at the University of Munich where he became a leading figure in the 'structuralist' group of philosophers of science. He has published widely on reconstructions of scientific theories, on the general structure of scientific theories and their development and application, and more recently on social institutions and simulations. Among his books are An Architectonic for Science (together with Moulines and Sneed), Soziale Insitutionen 1993, and Die Wissenschaft und ihre Methoden 1997. Among his articles, are ones on game theory: 'The Structure of the Spatial Theory of Elections' (together with Dreier), and a simulation of a 3p model from economics (together with Albert).
