The most recent advances in satellite and fiber optic technology bring our amazing world to us without having to leave the comforts of home. The first is to conceive of discovery in terms of abductive reasoning ( section 6.1 ). The second is to conceive of discovery in terms of problem-solving algorithms, whereby heuristic rules aid the processing of available data and enhance the success in finding solutions to problems ( section 6.2 ). Both lines of argument rely on a broad conception of logic, whereby the logic” of discovery amounts to a schematic account of the reasoning processes involved in knowledge generation.
He says the static, two-dimensional electron microscope images in the study may give a false impression of what’s going on. Watching what happens to single mitochondria over time and examining the organelles in 3-D would provide a fuller picture, he says.
After reanalyzing the data from the Dengvaxia clinical trials, scientists reported that the vaccine protected kids who already had been exposed to dengue, but increased the risk of severe infections in kids who hadn’t been , according to a study published July 2018 in the New England Journal of Medicine.
The first response to the challenge of the context distinction draws on a broad understanding of the term logic” to argue that we cannot but admit a general, domain-neutral logic if we do not want to assume that the success of science is a miracle (Jantzen 2016) and that a logic of scientific discovery can be developed ( section 6 ). The second response, drawing on a narrow understanding of the term logic”, is to concede that there is no logic of discovery, i.e., no algorithm for generating new knowledge.
Redner’s algorithm identified 9. As illustrated by these findings, certain scientific research can be very relevant for a scientific discovery that is later awarded a Nobel Prize, but the research itself does not need to have an extraordinary impact on science and does not need to meet the criteria of the algorithms.
