In preceding Chapters we discussed the tactical problems
associated with describing quantitative measurements,
reminding ourselves that the tools we use
(numbers, dimensions, units)
are almost perfectly arbitrary in isolation
but embody a functional or relational truth in the
"grammar" of their use.
Accepting these tools provisionally,
we turn now to the far messier problem of
actually performing measurements.
