Scientonomic Workflow (Barseghyan et al.-2016)NormativeScientonomic knowledge is best advanced by:
  1. documenting the body of accepted communal knowledge knowledge in an online encyclopedia;
  2. scrutinizing this accepted knowledge, identifying its flaws, and formulating open questions at seminars, conferences, publications, and other in-person or online formats;
  3. publishing journal articles that propose modifications to our current knowledge and documenting these suggestions;
  4. evaluating the suggested modifications with the goal of reaching a communal consensus and changing the respective encyclopedia pages when a verdict is reached.


Here are all the questions formulated by Rupik:

  • Deriving Methods from an Empty Set: Does the possibility of a method being derived from an empty set pose a problem for the current formulation of the third law? Can we conceive of a situation in which a method is derived from an empty subset?
  • Implementation vs. Employment of Methods: Is there a difference between implementation and employment of a method? Is the mechanism of implementation the same as the mechanism of employment?
  • Role of Used Theories in Method Employment: Does the third law allow for methods to be deductive consequences of used theories?
  • Scientonomic Workflow: How should changes in the accepted body of scientonomic knowledge be introduced? What are the steps and procedures of the scientonomic workflow?
