The talk will discuss how researchers in the 19th century conceptualized experimental practice, what rules for proper experimental procedure they endorsed, and in particular, how they thought about causes, uncertainties, complexity, and variability in experimentation. The focus will be on the life sciences (agriculture, plant nutrition, bacteriology).
With financial support from the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences International Keynote Speaker Support Fund.
Speakers: Jutta Schickore, Associate Professor of History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine, Indiana University Bloomington
