Question Answered

Method (Barseghyan-2018) is an attempt to answer the following question: What is method? How should it be defined?

See Method for more details.


This definition of method is meant to encompass the criteria of evaluation of all types, regardless of their being explicit or implicit, and thus merge what was previously separated into two classes of elements - methods and methodologies.
