Testing Hearing

Oxford University Press

This afterword to Testing Hearing: The Making of Modern Aurality sifts through a number of different meanings historically associated with forms of testing in the sciences and discusses their relationship with forms of experimentation. Testing as a “way of knowing” has assumed a wide variety of shapes in the sciences and their applications, many of them illustrated by the chapters in this volume. The afterword explores testing-related concepts such as screening, norms, standardization, probing, control, and sounding out.

Keywords:   testing, experiment, hearing, ways of knowing, history of science, history of technology
