1: Measuring is Knowing

 

by Prof. Martin Warnke, Institute of Culture and Aesthetics of Digital Media

Measurements are more than simple operational steps. Measurements require theory, up to the point that the interpretation of a certain reading of a scale is the last step of a very complicated theoretical chain of arguments. My own history as a physicist as well as recent experiments e. g. at CERN illustrate this supposition.
