A Note on the Post-Modern Philosophy of Science: A Tribute to Scerri’s A Tale of Seven Scientists (pp. 425-434) $50.00
Authors:  Mihai V. Putz
Abstract:
The “heroic” conception of scientific truth, usually associated with teleological truth (i.e., “the truth is out there”) and with the revolutions in scientific development, as proliferated by Popper and then by Kuhn, is currently re-cognized as merely a (continuous) evolution, made by trial and error with the aid of “little men” contribution around big or fundamental conceptions of Nature, so defining the new philosophy of science as promoted by Scerri’s 2016 Oxford book on A Tale of Seven Scientist and a New Philosophy of Science and clarified by the present author as belong to the post-modern approach of knowledge in general and science in special; in this post-modern context, the periphery is becoming center, i.e., the new “escaping center,” re-accelerating (by gravitation) the central research concepts of a circle (here the celebrated electronic configuration saga) in developing eccentricity on ellipses and with key innovation and critically equilibrating the attraction to center or to periphery on a hyper-bolas of a scientific “planetarium system”; such a framework may constitute a basis for a dynamic potential theory in nanotechnological (meta)clustering of XXI century within the actual “planetarium model” of a new philosophy of science.
