OPERATIONAL LANGUAGE EXPRESSING SCIENCE: THE LEAST FALSE METHOD OF REACHING ROME

—“Science is both the method of inquiry and the body of knowledge gained by that method’s application. A priori knowledge applies only to the abstract, once it interacts with the real world the test of any tool or paradigm is how effective it is in predicting and changing it. As there’s only one real world, any framework or method of inquiry that is effective in interfacing with it will approach the same results. All roads lead to Rome, as it were.”—Jason Johnson

>Curt Doolittle ^ This is the most important argument really. Although I would refine it to say ‘there is only one most parsimonious (shortest) road to Rome.’
