Description

“Crease’s brilliantly exploited theatrical analogy places scientific theorizing back into the wider context of experimental inquiry.” —Robert C. Scharff

Crease attacks the “mystical” account of experimentation embraced by the positivist and Kantian varieties of philosophy of science, according to which experimentation takes a backseat to theory.
