The Marxian Model of Scientific Activity (Model I)

  • Leszek Nowak
Part of the Synthese Library book series (SYLI, volume 139)


At the beginning we shall present the theory of scientific activity based on the supposition that the principal method employed in empirical sciences is that of idealization (Chapters 8–12). Next we shall present an outline of the theory of scientific prectice whose main idea is that the application of the method of idealization within competing scientific orientations leads to the objective, unintended process of approaching the absolute truth which, in turn, results in the amelioration of non-cognitive social praxis.
