Abstract

I show that in complex methodological contexts, representational and intervention-based roles require re-conceptualization. I analyze the relations between representation and intervention by focusing on the role of intervention in mediating representations. To do this, first I show how applied scientific practice challenges the simple distinction between representational and intervention-based roles of experiment/measurement. Then I discuss the complex interaction between representation and intervention applied to methodology in biomarker measurement.
