The Logic of Science as a Model-Oriented Logic

Abstract
Philosophers at least since Kant, with Larry Laudan being a recent example, have suggested that scientific inquiry be thought of as a problem-solving or question-answering activity. The logic of such a conception of scientific inquiry has not been studied systematically, however. This paper presents some of the main aspects of the logic on which such a conception of science is based. That logic is called in this paper model-oriented logic, and it is suggested that one can systematically study optimal questioning strategies with it.
