The Law of Method Employment (Rawleigh-2022)
An attempt to answer the question of Mechanism of Method Employment which states "A method becomes employed only if it is derivable from a non-empty subset of other elements of the mosaic."

The Law of Method Employment (Rawleigh-2022) is an attempt to answer the following question: How do methods become employed by a community in theory assessment?
See Mechanism of Method Employment for more details.
This law of method employment is a corollary of Rawleigh's law of norm employment. It implies that, just like the norms of all other types, methods become employed when they are derivable from other elements of the agent's mosaic (such as other theories, other methods, and perhaps even questions). As such, the law preserves most of the content of Sebastien's third law by solving some of the issues inherent in it.
See The Law of Norm Employment (Rawleigh-2022) for a more thorough exposition.
No reasons are indicated for this theory.
