Accept that propositional technological knowledge – i.e. technological questions, theories, and methods – can be part of a mosaic.

The modification was suggested to Scientonomy community by Maxim Mirkin on 28 December 2018.1 The modification is currently being evaluated; a verdict is pending.

Preamble

The current theoretical scientonomy is unclear on the status of technological knowledge in a scientific mosaic. On the one hand, several examples from the history of technology have been traditionally used by scientonomy to illustrate its tenets (e.g. changes in drug testing methods illustrating the third law). On the other hand, there is currently no clarity on whether there can be such a thing as accepted technological knowledge, or whether technological knowledge is all about use.

Modification

Accept that propositional technological knowledge – i.e. technological questions, theories, and methods – can be part of a mosaic.

Also accept the following questions as legitimate topics of scientonomic inquiry:

  • History of Technological Mosaics: What technological theories were accepted and what technological methods were employed by different epistemic agents at different time periods?
  • The Status of Inexplicable Knowledge: Is there such a thing as inexplicable knowledge?
  • Typology of Technological Knowledge: What types of technological knowledge are there?
