Technology as Proto-Science by Sven Hansson

Sven Hansson argues that the experimental method dates much further back in history than science. Experiment, though part of science, an indispensable part, many would say - is more akin to a type of technological practice and intervention, rather than to questions of theoretical kind. Similarly, Hansson, states that technology is much more than applied science. Technology and experiment both form part of an older and more complex history of human craft, compared to, for instance, theoretical and mathematical physics.
