Abstract: Since the beginnings of error theory and its first developments by Gauss and Laplace, a physical quantity has been characterized by its 'true value', a value that would have been obtained had an ideal perfect measurement been processed. In the second half of the twentieth century, this conception of measurement has been challenged from different perspectives, leading to a position where the concept of 'true value' loses its central place, if not becomes avoidable.
