Scientific Mosaic (Rawleigh-2022) is an attempt to definition the following question: What is scientific mosaic? How should it be defined?
See Scientific Mosaic for more details.
Rather than conceiving a scientific mosaic as a simple set-theoretic unity of epistemic elements, this definition is model-theoretic: it replaces the explicitly set-theoretic wording “set of all epistemic elements” with a semantic “model of all accepted elements”.1 The definition considers a scientific mosaic to be a model for interpreting all natural language sentences, whether those be observational, theoretical, or simply ordinary conversational sentences.
