Measurement as an elementary act of cognition

V.P. Chalyy
Annotations languages:

The article is devoted to philosophical-interpretative and applied aspects of the true value concept and uncertainty concept in measurement. Considering the measurement process as an elementary act of cognition, the author made an attempt on a basis of the most common philosophical concepts and definitions to clarify the basic principles of measurement to compare two approaches to the evaluation of the quality of a measurement result: - the classic approach (CA) (or the concept of error), and a new approach - the concept of uncertainty (UA).
