What minimal set of inference rules (i.e. logic) is required for scientific change to occur?
The process of scientific change seem to require some rules of inference to be possible. This is highlighted in some of the current tenets of scientonomy, such as the the law of method employment. This raises a question: what minimal set of inference must be accepted by an epistemic agent, or assumed to be universal to all agents, to enable scientific change to occur. Would it be possible for a mosaic with no accepted rules of inference whatsoever to undergo scientific change?
In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Hakob Barseghyan and Patrick Fraser in 2018. 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.
