On the Metaphysics of Experimental Physics by K. Rogers



On the Metaphysics of Experimental Physics. eBook 76,99 €. price for Russian Federation (gross). This provocative and critical work addresses the question of why scientific realists and positivists consider experimental physics to be a natural and empirical science. Taking insights from contemporary science studies, continental philosophy, and the history of physics, this book describes and analyses the metaphysical presuppositions that underwrite the technological use of experimental apparatus and instruments to explore, model, and understand nature

When does experimental physics become metaphysics? Rogers (science, U. of Bath) examines the complex relationships amongst technology, knowledge, nature and truth, including Bhaskar's argument, Galileo's mathematical projection of the six simple machines and the mechanical world-view, the role of mathematics in building metaphysics, the influence of the art of experimentation, and the will to build machines and thought systems.

In this era of democracy promotion we need to ask tough questions about the nature of the kind of democracy that is being promoted throughout the world. This paper will welcome speculative realism’s engagement with metaphysics after a period of its disavowal. Moreover, the turn to speculation is eminently timely in the wake of the latest financial speculations and the need for alternatives to the neo-liberal hegemony. Collingwood’s earlier ‘Function of Metaphysics in Civilization’ informs Van der Dussen’s reading of the better-known An Essay on Metaphysics. Van der Dussen claims that the latter does not so much argue for as assume that metaphysics is a historical discipline. Sympathetic, Van der Dussen argues that the metaphysician uncovers presuppositions, but it is the task of the special sciences to change.

Rogers Professor Karl. Does experimental physics provide facts about the natural world? Scientific realists and positivists both argue that it does. This book critically addresses the question of how experimental physics is conceptually and historically possible as a natural and empirical science.

This provocative and critical work addresses the question of why scientific realists and positivists consider experimental physics to be a natural and empirical science. Taking insights from contemporary science studies, continental philosophy, and the history of physics, this book describes and analyses the metaphysical presuppositions that underwrite the technological use of experimental apparatus and instruments to explore, model, and understand nature. By revealing this metaphysical foundation, the author questions whether experimental physics is a natural and empirical science at all.
