Experiments have become part of the scientific apparatus in social science only relatively recently compared with the status they had already acquired as a superior proof practice in the late seventeenth century in the natural sciences. For the second year, the seminar invites participants from different disciplines, such as animal studies, cognitive sciences, economics, linguistics, neurosciences, philosophy, psychology, etc., to analyse the experimental paradigm, its historical development and its epistemological constraints and tries to open the blackbox of experimental settings. That is, this seminar aims at reflecting on the status of experiments in the social sciences in a comparative way across disciplines, the part they play in providing insights and proofs, the methodological and rhetorical differences in experiments and experimental settings, the necessity and role of incentives in eliciting "truthful" answers, the transfer from results in the lab or in the "field" to the "world", the status of the theoretical models to which experimental results are compared, etc.


This is our last session this year, but we will back in October 2017!
