This project proposes a systematic, philosophical analysis of experimentation understood in terms of series. It aims to illuminate and understand how experiments connect sequentially, looking specifically at the early modern period, where serial experiments are abundant. Its hypothesis is that serial experimentation is used to generate knowledge.
