The Law of Method Employment (Rawleigh-2022)
This is an answer to the question Mechanism of Method Employment that 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 was formulated by William Rawleigh in 2022.1
Suggestions To Accept
Here are all the modifications where the acceptance of this theory has been suggested:
|Modification||Community||Date Suggested||Summary||Verdict||Verdict Rationale||Date Assessed|
|Sciento-2022-0002||Scientonomy||28 February 2022||Accept the new law of norm employment that fixes some of the issues of the current law of method employment and makes it applicable to norms of all types.||Open|
The Law of Method Employment (Rawleigh-2022) is an attempt to theory the following question: How do methods become employed by an epistemic agent?
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.
