What is non-epistemic community? How should it be defined? I.e. how can it be differentiated from epistemic community?
The term epistemic community is widely used in many contexts when referring to communities that have to do with knowledge. This assumes that there are also non-epistemic communities. The term needs a proper definition to make it clear what differentiates epistemic communities from non-epistemic communities.
In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Nicholas Overgaard in 2016. The question is currently accepted as a legitimate topic for discussion by Scientonomy community. At the moment, the term has no accepted definition in Scientonomy.
