Rèpliques d'instruments científics : entre ciència i tècnica

Marc Boada i Ferrer


The scientific instrument is an intellectual fossil. It allows, through its study,
to understand its function in the experimentation area. But beyond this, there is also a
technical reading. Its goal is the analysis of piece, making an orderly reading. For this
the author proposes to study parameters like the technical tradition of the moment,
that of his constructor, the aesthetic style, its form or its function. This process allows
to rescue paleotechniques, to verify the artifact performances and to relate it with its
social environment.
