About 15 years ago, Peter Kroes and Anthonie Meijers published as editors a collection of papers under the title The empirical turn in the philosophy of technology (Kroes and Meijers 2000). Next to containing several examples of the kind of studies the editors had in mind, the book made an ardent plea for a reorientation of the community of philosophers of technology toward the practice of technology and, more specifically, the practice of engineering, and sketched the likely benefits for the field of pursuing the major questions that characterize it in an empirically informed way.
