about

"Crease's brilliantly exploited theatrical analogy places scientific theorizing back into the wider context of experimental inquiry." -Robert C. Scharff

Crease attacks the "mystical" account of experimentation embraced by the positivist and Kantian varieties of philosophy of science, according to which experimentation takes a backseat to theory.
