Data and Big Data in the Sciences

The phrases ‘big data’ is increasingly present in the public sphere, in connection with a certain rhetoric associating increasing volumes of data with revolutionary changes. In this context, the sciences are often mentioned as examples of this revolution. But are the sciences actually undergoing a big data revolution? Why is scientific (big) data something that we should care about? And why should we discuss data from a philosophical standpoint?
