Applicability of the Laws of Scientific Change
To which mosaics do the laws of scientific change apply? Do they apply only to scientific communities, to all epistemic communities, or all communities whatsoever (including non-epistemic communities)? Do these patterns emerge and exist in communities who gather together to study the world?
Whether or not the laws of scientific change can apply to other communities will indicate whether or not the observed patterns only apply to scientific communities, or bearers of belief systems as a whole. For example, would the laws apply to a fundamentalist community?
