Abstract

The author aims to compare the ways we interpret images in art and in science. The author suggests that, in art studies, analogy is often used, whereas in natural sciences, researchers appeal to abduction. To illustrate this assumption, she uses some critical texts about Yves Klein’s Anthropometries, as well as some ethnographic reports of scientists’ shop-talks around images, collected in a pharmacology laboratory.
