What Does Galileo's Discovery of Jupiter's Moons Tell Us about the Process of Scientific Discovery?
Lawson, Anton E.
Science and Education, v11 n1 p1-24 Jan 2002
Given that hypothetico-deductive reasoning has played a role in other important scientific discoveries, asks the question whether it plays a role in all important scientific discoveries. Explores and rejects as viable alternatives possible alternative scientific methods such as Baconian induction and combinatorial analysis. Discusses the educational implications of this hypothetico-deductive view of science. (Author/MM)
