Science is a sub-category of knowledge and hence it must satisfy the general conditions of the primary elements of the knowledge square and its derivatives of belief and analytical squares. As a sub-category of knowledge, what distinguishes it from other sub-categories of knowledge? This question demands us to produce a definition of science that will allow us to create its linguistic dynamic category which will offer us the conditions of a sorting algorithm for locating scientific items and non-scientific items at any point of time in duality. We have already offered a definition of knowledge. We shall now offer a definition of science as a sub-category of knowledge.
