The activity of scholars presupposes models of the universe, i.e. structures, which can be used to simulate and anticipate the evolution of phenomena. Such models are usually conceived with the purpose of answering certain peculiar problems, specific to a well‐defined field. As a result, believes that this kind of research does not explain the universe as such, or the world at large, whereas the various scientific models tell us something about the world of scholars, and about how they approach the universe.
