  • Sciento-2018-0013: Accept scientificity as a distinct epistemic stance that epistemic agents can take towards theories. Also accept several questions concerning the definition of scientificity and the applicability of scientificity to other epistemic elements as legitimate topics of scientonomic inquiry. The modification was suggested to Scientonomy community by Ameer Sarwar and Patrick Fraser on 28 December 2018.1 The modification is currently being evaluated; a verdict is pending.
  • Sciento-2018-0014: Accept the law of theory demarcation as a new scientonomic axiom. Also accept questions concerning indicators of scientificity as legitimate topics of scientonomic inquiry.
