Across the Boundaries

Extrapolation in Biology and Social Science

Daniel Steel

Environmental Ethics and Science Policy Series

Extrapolation consists of generalizing causal conclusions from one context to others that may differ in relevant aspects. In Across the Boundaries, Steel argues that previous accounts of extrapolation are inadequate and proposes a better approach that is able to answer methodological critiques of extrapolation from animal models to humans.
