PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1994:46 - 57 (1994)
Rasmussen (1993) argues that, because electron microscopists did not use robustness and would not have been warranted in using it as a criterion for the reality or the artifactuality of mesosomes, the bacterial mesosome serves as a test case for robustness that it fails. I respond by arguing that a more complete reading of the research literature on the mesosome shows that ultimately the more robust body of data did not support the mesosome and that electron microscopists used and were warranted in using robustness as a criterion for the artifactuality of mesosomes.
