This thesis focuses on the limitation of scientific knowledge due to human perception. The author explores this question by conducting three separate experimental studies which focus on inhibition, purification and immobilization of the enzyme photosystem II, the biological enzyme responsible for producing molecular oxygen. Then, the author examines the limitations of scientific knowledge in the context of method and how this shapes his own understanding of the society of science.
