The process of inquiry involves staying in the midst of things of the world but of transforming them in specific ways so as to give them the kind of form that is determinate. Therefore, our work in this category consists in identifying and formulating such determinations in their empirical specificity, i.e. their determinations. Hence the interest of an experiment is its ability neither to represent a pre-existing situation nor to construct an entirely new one but through reiterated and controlled adjustment to arrive at a set of determinations which vindicate and warrant the actuality of the inquiry.
