—“Hey Curt, a friend and I are going to read Kuhn’s “Structure of Scientific Revolutions” soon. Do you recommend any other work that would expound the most up-to-date and rigorous philosophy of science? Cheers.”—
The conversion of science from justification to falsification to to market competition, and unifying science and law, where science is but an extension and application of the law of tort, and the testimony required in laws of tort.
Popper’s Logic of Scientific Discovery,
Kuhn’s Structure of Scientific Revolutions,
Popper’s conjectures and refutations,
…but first read:
Hayek’s knowledge in society essay, and his
Road to Serfdom
… And if you can manage it:
Elanor Ostrom (Commons)
And Amartya Sen (philosophy and economy)
… And then
Hayek’s Law, Legislation, and Liberty if you want to take it all the way through to the end.
Popper is talking about explicit knowledge and hayek about tacit knowledge. And we must possess both. Just as we must possess recipes (transformations/actions) and theories (search algorithms/opportunities). One to search for opportunities and one to exploit them.
THe rest of the century is basically wasted with poorly articulated arguments attempting to state what is a fairly obvious problem.
As far as I know my work is most current, and that is that there is no via-positiva scientific method (what to do) only a via-negativa scientific method (due diligence in that your testimony is truthful.) That we must perform due diligence in each of the applicable dimensions of possible human comprehension. And that science consists of the art of attempting to possess the information necessary to testify.
And therefore that science then is a market for arguments.
