    This paper focuses on the establishment of the Astronomical Observatory at the Lisbon Polytechnic School in the 1870s and explores its interplay with the launching of an astrophysics research programme at this school. In the late nineteenth century, the establishment of an astrophysics research programme represented a challenge to university observatories. As national observatories were mostly concerned with meridian astronomy, astrophysics provided university observatories with the chance to assume the leadership in this new branch of astronomical science. Yet, in the (...)

    Cartwright and her collaborators have elaborated a provocative view of science which emphasises the independence from theory &unknown;in methods and aims&unknown; of phenomenological model building. This thesis has been supported in a recent paper by an analysis of the London and London model of superconductivity. In the present work we begin with a critique of Cartwright's account of the relationship between theoretical and phenomenological models before elaborating an alternative picture within the framework of the partial structures version of the (...)
