Zitat des Monats (14)

September 20th, 2013 von Ralf Neumann

Vor einigen Wochen schrieb der australische Wissenschaftstheoretiker John Wilkins auf seinem Blog Evolving Thoughts zur “Wissenschaftlichen Methode”:

I’ve often noted that there is no such single thing as “scientific method” […]. But there are several things that science does that are worthy of the name: the use of observational evidence, the use of abductive and inductive reasoning to generalise and explain, and the use of deductive reasoning to winkle out the implications of the foregoing. Terms like “theory construction”, “disciplinary matrix” and “research program” are fancier ways to say just this.
