PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1994:452 - 457 (1994)
|Abstract||One important point that has emerged from recent work on the history and philosophy of experiment is that technology plays an integral role in experiment, and therefore in science. Technology determines what experimenters can measure and how well it can be measured. The importance of technology, along with several new questions that its use raises, has been made quite clear in the papers presented in this session.|
