Publisher: University of California Press




An international group of astronomers believe they have answered the question of how young stars are able to fuel the growth of their own stars. I think Chomsky is wrong to push the needle so far towards theory over facts; in the history of science, the laborious accumulation of facts is the dominant mode, not a novelty. In other words, you've run up against the limits of our current knowledge; to make any further progress is going to take an innovation that's not yet a part of our scientific lexicon. Berkeley: University of California Press; 1977. Laudan L: Progress and its Problems: Toward a Theory of Scientific Growth. The great unsolved problems of your time look like missing puzzle pieces, while the tools, equations and current theories begin to look like misshapen pieces that don't quite fit where they're supposed to. Longino HE: Science as Social Knowledge: Values and Objectivity in Scientific Inquiry. What a theory is supposed to do etc etc. Progress and Its Problems: Towards a Theory of Scientific Growth. The bombardment of light, with its colors and contrasts, helps guide proper eye growth. But growth of the eye also depends heavily on external cues — what scientists call visual feedback. (ed.), 1982, In Pursuit of Truth. Progress and Its Problems: Toward a Theory of Scientific Growth. It's true there's been a lot of work on trying to apply statistical models to various linguistic problems. Larry Laudan's 'Progress and its problems: Towards a theory of scientific growth' explains this beautifully. Image credit: Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory / Paul Preuss / Michael Crommie. Laudan, L., 1977, Progress and Its Problems: Towards a Theory of Scientific Growth, London: Routledge. I think there have been some successes, but a lot of Science is a combination of gathering facts and making theories; neither can progress on its own.
