How to Avoid the Experimenters’ Regress
- Allan FranklinAffiliated withUniversity of Colorado
Harry Collins is well known for both his skepticism concerning experimental results and evidence and for what he calls the “experimenters’ regress,” the view that a correct outcome is one obtained with a good experimental apparatus, whereas a good experimental apparatus is one that gives the correct outcome. He has expressed this view at length in Changing Order (Collins 1985).
