    Contested Boundaries: The String Theory Debates and Ideologies of Science.Sophie Ritson & Kristian Camilleri - 2015 - Perspectives on Science 23 (2):192-227.
    “The confrontation between string theory and its critics,” writes Jarod Lanier, “is one of the great intellectual dramas of our age”. String theory is widely regarded by its practitioners as the only the only viable option for constructing a unified theory of gravity and elementary particle physics. It has attracted an unprecedented number of researchers, including many Nobel Laureates, and has been instrumental in opening up new areas at the intersection of mathematics and physics.. Yet, since the 1980s it has (...)

    Creativity and Modelling the Measurement Process of the Higgs Self-Coupling at the LHC and HL-LHC.Sophie Ritson - 2021 - Synthese 199 (5-6):11887-11911.
    This paper provides an account of the nature of creativity in high-energy physics experiments through an integrated historical and philosophical study of the current and planned attempts to measure the self-coupling of the Higgs boson by two experimental collaborations at the Large Hadron Collider and the planned High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider. A notion of creativity is first identified broadly as an increase in the epistemic value of a measurement outcome from an unexpected transformation, and narrowly as a condition for (...)
