Theory of Science


We use and improve the structuralist framework which was developed in the last fourty years. We work on simulation programmes for theory developments.

In a programme by D. Kurzawe the hypotheses of a theory are evaluated by researchers and learners relative to data of the theory. A program by J. Urban simulates 'blind' flows of changes induced by confirming and disconfirming events in theory-nets. This programme is blind because the contents of the theories are not specified.
