# Synchronism of Method Rejection theorem (Barseghyan-2015)

An attempt to answer the question of *Synchronism vs. Asynchronism of Method Rejection* which states "A method becomes rejected only when some of the theories, from which it follows, also become rejected."

*Synchronism of Method Rejection theorem* was formulated by Hakob Barseghyan in 2015.1 It is currently accepted by Scientonomy community as the best available theory on the subject.

Scientonomy | 1 January 2016 | The theorem became de facto accepted by the community at that time together with the whole theory of scientific change. | Yes |

## Question Answered

Synchronism of Method Rejection theorem (Barseghyan-2015) is an attempt to answer the following question: When a **method is rejected**, must it be the case that a theory has also been rejected?

*See Synchronism vs. Asynchronism of Method Rejection for more details.*

## Description

According to *the synchronism of method rejection theorem*, a method becomes rejected only when some of the theories from which it follows become rejected. By the method rejection theorem, a method is rejected when other methods incompatible with it become employed. By the Third Law, this can happen only when some of the theories from which it follows are also rejected.1
