Concluding Remarks

Part of the Information Science and Knowledge Management book series (ISKM, volume 7)

It is useful to begin this chapter by summarizing the major points made in the preceding chapters. This is done under four headings: the classifications themselves; the advantages that flow from these; the insights from comparisons across classifications; and the various Golden Mean arguments (see chapter 1) that have both supported and been supported by these efforts at classification. Three broad questions are then addressed: “Why should science be believed?”; “How might science be improved?”; and “How should science be taught?” In answering these questions the roles of both specialized and interdisciplinary science are discussed.
