Measuring and Counting: More Boundaries

Matthew D. Lund

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In an ideal science every concept would have a sharp edge—a boundary. I cannot confidently imagine what such an ideal science would be like, or even whether the notion itself is wholly unobjectionable. But undeniably, complete precision in locating the boundaries of its central concepts is a goal of modern science, whether or not that goal is logically attainable.
