A natural extension of the methodology of the scientific research programmes of Imre Lakatos


Authors
Abstract
Research programs allow the development of more complex theories. The terms can be applied to both individual theories and programs. Unlike Kuhn's scientific revolutions, Lakatos assumed that the simultaneous existence of several research programs is the norm. Science is currently facing such an unusual situation: two incompatible theories, but both accepted by the scientific community describe the same reality in two different ways. Research programs may at one time compete with single theories, single theories between them, or research programs between them. We can speak of a "research unit" as a singular theory or a research program. DOI: 10.13140/RG.2.2.31863.98729
