Joseph Ransdell on New Concepts of Science

Archaeology Quotations

By

[The] philosophy of science has lost contact with what is of basic importance in science by regarding science from the point of view of theory of knowledge--which is essentially a librarial and administrative conception of science--rather than regarding it as inquiry, which is the way the working scientist thinks of science. When you focus on science as an inquiry process rather than as a body of results, publication as communication is the key to it.

Joseph Ransdell. 1998. September Forum archive, 10/20/98. The September Forum was begun in September 1998 by the American Scientist, to discuss the potential for Open Source publication.
