The continuation of the dispute between Redi and Charas brought methodological issues to the fore. The chapter shows that while both investigators were experimentalists, they had quite different understandings of certain methodological concepts, particularly of the concept of repetition and of the significance of accidents and contingencies. The dispute about snake venom remained unresolved.
