Knowledge is rooted in testing and experience, but testing the value of software is problematic as testing in itself can only prove the existence of bugs. Current approaches are thus unsatisfactory.
I will introduce Kant’s philosophy and demonstrates how it can help us elevate testing using the human capacity to judge qualitatively.
It will be suggested how value, quality and meaning of software systems can be tested, explored, and expressed in absolute terms shared between testers, developers, and their stakeholders.
