European researchers and philosophers of science address a range of problems relating to experimentation in seven papers from a September- October 201 workshop in Bologna, Italy and two or three comments on each by colleagues. Most of them ground their epistemological considerations on historical events or case studies, in the common European style, in order to combine ideas from the history and the philosophy of science into a unique perspective. The topics include from theory to experiment and back again, the emergence and future of experimental economics, a heuristics of discovery in the cognitive sciences, and styles of experimentation.
