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.

The second element of a scientific discovery consists in binding together—colligating”, as Whewell called it—a set of facts by bringing them under a general conception. Since the methods to select publications in our algorithms are different from the method used by Redner’s algorithm, it is hard, not to say impossible, to answer the question convincingly.

The study, published in 2010 in the American Economic Journal: Applied Economics, found that by the time children from the poorest families reached age 21, an additional $4,000 per year increased the time those children spent in school by a full year Researchers say the money also helps to reduce stressors within households, such as fighting and substance in the news

Capturing the dynamics of conceptual change in science”, in R. Giere (ed.), Cognitive Models of Science, Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 3-45. Protestant churches believed that God created any sciences possible; therefore it was a human duty to study as much as possible as well as proclaiming God and expressing God in all human achievements.
