Supertypes of Normative Theory
What are the supertypes of a normative theory?
In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Zoe Sebastien in 2015. The question is currently accepted as a legitimate topic for discussion by Scientonomy community. The following supertype of Normative Theory is currently accepted in Scientonomy:
|Community||Accepted From||Acceptance Indicators||Still Accepted||Accepted Until||Rejection Indicators|
|Scientonomy||1 January 2016||Supertypes of Normative Theory became accepted by virtue of the acceptance of Normative Theory. It was acknowledged as an open question by the Scientonomy Seminar 2015.||Yes|
|Normative Theory Is a Subtype of Theory (Sebastien-2016)||Normative Theory is a subtype of Theory, i.e. theory is a supertype of normative theory.||2016|
|Community||Theory||Accepted From||Accepted Until|
|Scientonomy||Normative Theory Is a Subtype of Theory (Sebastien-2016)||15 February 2017|
|Modification||Community||Date Suggested||Summary||Verdict||Verdict Rationale||Date Assessed|
|Sciento-2017-0002||Scientonomy||23 January 2017||Accept a new ontology of scientific change where the two fundamental elements are theories - both descriptive and normative - and methods.||Accepted||The community has agreed that after the solution of the paradox of normative propositions, there are no obstacles for including normative propositions into the ontology of scientific change.c1 c2 c3 It was also agreed that including normative propositions into the ontology of scientific change "would allow us to grasp the role that methodological and ethical rules play in science".c4||15 February 2017|
Normative Theory Is a Subtype of Theory (Sebastien-2016) states: "Normative Theory is a subtype of Theory, i.e. theory is a supertype of normative theory."
According to Sebastien, norms, such as those of ethics, aesthetics, or methodology, are normative theories.1
