Workshop – From the Library to the Laboratory and Back Again
Most of us know science only through their textual or visual representations. Unfortunately the actual work of doing science remains largely obscure. The making of scientific facts certainly involves much more than reading, thinking and writing. To a large degree it requires meticulous physical experimentation within the material world. At this workshop we will reappraise experiment as a means of historical investigation.
