Facts are created. This raises knowledge-theoretical matters, but also aesthetic matters - insofar as they are emblematic of the absolute giveness of the world. Established approaches of scientific research explore their construction. This volume for the first time takes up the dazzlingly insightful concept of »fait accompli«. The thematization of the sublime perfection of facts proves fruitful for a historically broad philosophy of science, science and technology research, philosophy and history of science, and design theory.
