Paradigm science is a set of rules to make inferences about validity of arguments. It is used to produce shared understanding and describe differences in thinking.
What inference rules are used when the scientific paradigm is used? The paradigm must comply with the scientific method.
- If an argument is not backed up by data, it is considered invalid. In practice, it should have a reference.
- If an argument is attacked by a valid argument, it is considered invalid.
Scientific paradigm is based on the scientific method, where criticism has a central role and where observations are considered as the ultimate method to learn about the world (and thus about truthlikeness of the arguments).
