Are there theories that are necessarily part of any mosaic?
The necessary method theorem states that the method "only accept the best available theories" is a necessary element of any scientific mosaic. Are there any necessary theories in addition to this method? It seems as though there must be some necessary analytic theories, since any scientific enterprise assumes a whole network of concepts, albeit not explicitly defined. The question is whether there are any necessary synthetic propositions. If so, this could mean that synthetic a priori knowledge is possible.
