Ron Wakkary, William Odom, Sabrina Hauser, Garnet Hertz, Henry Lin
2015 Aarhus Series on Human Centered Computing  
We propose a complementary concept – material speculation – that utilizes actual and situated design artifacts in the everyday as a site of critical inquiry.  ...  We present five examples of interaction design artifacts that can be viewed as material speculations.  ...  We do this through proposing material speculation as a conceptual framing for reading and creating design artifacts for critical inquiry.  ...

Quantum ontology without speculation

Matthias Egg
2021 European Journal for Philosophy of Science  
AbstractExisting proposals concerning the ontology of quantum mechanics (QM) either involve speculation that goes beyond the scientific evidence or abandon realism about large parts of QM.  ...  For this purpose, I defend a non-fundamentalist approach to ontology, which is then applied to various aspects of QM.  ...  The images or other third party material in this article are included in the article's Creative Commons licence, unless indicated otherwise in a credit line to the material.  ...
