Resumen:
Scientific explanations and predictions are made of arguments. The theories provide the premises that, under specific initial conditions, support the conclusions: statements describing the phenomena to be explained or predicted.  These arguments are defeasible, since one theory might elicit better arguments than another.  This lead us to the idea that the process by which scientific explanations and predictions are justified can be studied through models of defeasible argumentation. This work introduces a simple model in which arguments conformed by structures of the form átheory, factñ interact through a defeat relation towards a final acceptance (or rejection) within the represented scientific field.  Taking relations like explicative strength and simplicity as implicit in the defeat relation, the model can represent the usual circumstances in science where a weakly explicative theory survives because of methodological advantages like simplicity.   Keywords: representation of scientific knowledge, defeasible argumentation, scientific explanation Indexada por Latindex, EBSCO, Philosopher´s Index, Revue Philosophique de LouvainLatindex, EBSCO, Philosopher´s Index, Revue Philosophique de Louvain
