On the Logical Structure of the Development of a Scientific Domain

  • Maria Nowakowska
Part of the Annals of Systems Research book series (ASRE, volume 7)


The object of the analysis will be a (arbitrary but fixed throughout the considerations) domain D of scientific enterprise. One can think here of D as some narrow domain, e. g. a study of some particular phenomenon; D may also be interpreted as a wider subdomain, such as genetics, say, or it may be a wide domain, for instance, psychology as a whole.
