An attempt to answer the question of Scope of Scientonomy - Time Fields and Scale which states "Scientonomy ought to account for all scientific changes for all time periods where a scientific mosaic can be found."

Scope of Scientonomy - All Time Periods was formulated by Hakob Barseghyan in 2015.1 It is currently accepted by Scientonomy community as the best available theory on the subject.

Question Answered

Scope of Scientonomy - All Time Periods (Barseghyan-2015) is an attempt to answer the following question: For changes in the mosaic of what time period ought a scientonomic theory account? For changes in which fields of inquiry ought it to account? Ought it deal only in grand changes, or should it account for minor changes as well?

See Scope of Scientonomy - Time Fields and Scale for more details.

Description

Scientonomy ought not to limit its applicability to a restricted time period. If a scientific mosaic can be identified at a certain period in time, then it is a task of scientonomy to explain any and all changes in that mosaic at that time period. Similarly, an observational scientonomists ought not exclude any time period from their domain.
