We will regard the relationship between philosophical conceptualization and empirical data as an iterative dialogue between theory and data, which is guided by a particular ‘feeling with’ the empirical phenomenon under study. On the basis of our own experience, we will explain how this dialogical interplay between conceptual discourse and empirical insight manifests itself when analysing the practices of infectious disease modelling and a team of planetary scientists. Thereby, we offer not only practical examples, but also a framework for further reflection on the methodology of Empirical Philosophy of Science.
