Measurement 42 (9):1270–1277 (2009)
The paper examines fundamental problems of widely-defined measurement that lie outside the representation concerns of measurement theory. It is intended as a starting point of a research agenda. It shows that measurement is applied in a wide range of diverse domains of knowledge and enquiry for which a wide-sense definition of measurement is necessary. It examines philosophical objections to the application of measurement. It considers in particular problems of measurand concept formation, validity, verifiability and of theories for the measurand. It concludes that Measurement Science should address the whole range of applications of measurement and should endeavour to provide a universal framework of concepts and principles to address all applications of measurement.
