Imre Lakatos, The methodology of scientific research programmes - An Overview

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
The methodology of scientific research programmes is a collection of papers published over time expressing a radical review of Popper's demarcation criterion between science and non-science, leading to a new theory of scientific rationality. Volume I address aspects of the philosophy of science, and volume II contains works on the philosophy of mathematics. For a science historian, the reconstruction proposed by Lakatos is attractive and explains the evolution of science to a level that has not been achieved before. The basic evaluation unit proposed by Lakatos is the research programme, and especially the dynamics of these programmes. DOI: 10.13140/RG.2.2.31605.01767
