Outline of Scientific Activities

Scientific activity can be analysed according to two points of view:

  • its levels of investigation, i.e., levels at which activity is carried out with respect to interests and achieved results.

From the point of view of levels of investigation, the following considerations hold:

  • identification of epistemologicical, logical, methodological, conceptual, phenomenological and application levels of activity,

  • identification of trends towards embedding activity into a deeper investigation of its relevance to overall scientific advances, with potential contributions to philosophy of science.
