Towards an Action- and Operation-oriented Philosophy of Science and Technology
2017; 291 Seiten (englisch)
In the last decades there have been quite a few new accents in the philosophy of technology and philosophy of science amounting, e. g., to the so-called schools of the â€śNew Experimentalismâ€ť, â€śNew Instrumentalismâ€ť and, recently, â€śNew Mechanismâ€ť. All these emphasize the impact of instruments, experiments and â€śmechanismsâ€ť of the respective technologies and potentialities opened up by the progress and development of ever-improving measuring instruments, procedures etc. In addition to these practice-oriented views this book also accentuates the processand action-orientation including practical responsibility problems as well as dynamic systems models from an epistemological perspective of the methodological scheme-interpretationist approach developed by the author.
