ROUNDTABLE SESSION: S. S. STEVENS, THE MAN, THE SCIENTIST
As part of Stevens Day, 26 July 2006, some of his former students and collaborators participate in an informal roundtable titled, S. S. Stevens: The man, the scientist. They present a series of vignettes that focus on personal relationships and exchanges, mostly about psychophysics. We hope thereby to gain insight into the way Stevens identified a problem, placed it in its appropriate context, related it to what was already known, developed needed analytic and experimental procedures, provided the theoretical even philosophical underpinnings, and finally came up with clear and impelling presentations in word and figure. A primary goal of the round table is to provide inspiration and advice to our younger colleagues.
