When do we stop talking about the "true" value?
Editorial comment on measurements. It is suggested that we should abandon unhelpful notions of 'true value' where we are really appealing to conventionally established notions of value, eg internationally agreed standards. There are mathematical models, there are empirical results which might relate to those measurements, and that relationship might itself be measurable, but this does not mean we can useful talk of a true value that lies somewhere between the model and the measurement.
