# Synchronism vs. Asynchronism of Method Rejection

When a **method is rejected**, must it be the case that a theory has also been rejected?

In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Hakob Barseghyan in 2015.
The question is currently accepted as a legitimate topic for discussion by Scientonomy community. Synchronism of Method Rejection theorem (Barseghyan-2015) is currently accepted by Scientonomy community as the best available theory on the subject. *Synchronism of Method Rejection theorem (Barseghyan-2015)* states "A method becomes rejected only when some of the theories, from which it follows, also become rejected."

## Current View

In Scientonomy community, the accepted theory on the subject is Synchronism of Method Rejection theorem (Barseghyan-2015). It states: "A method becomes rejected only when some of the theories, from which it follows, also become rejected."

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 Read More
