Assessment of Scientonomy - Method
What method ought to be employed to assess a scientonomic theory?
Theories are assessed by a community and will be accepted into the mosaic of that community if they satisfy the employed method of the time. Like any other theory, a scientonomic theory will be assessed by the scientonomic community itself. What method ought the scientonomic community use to assess a scientonomic theory? While it seems clear that a theory of scientific change must account for the process of scientific change and the transitions from one accepted theory to another and one employed method to another, 1 it is not clear what methodology should act as a normative guide for such an assessment.
In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Hakob Barseghyan in 2015. The question is currently accepted as a legitimate topic for discussion by Scientonomy community. At the moment, the question has no accepted answer in Scientonomy.
