PHILOSOPHICAL ISSUES IN MY PUBLISHED PAPERS

 

 

METHODOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS

 

In this survey of published and unpublished papers, we make a pragmatic turn and show how fresh interpretation of eternal philosophical questions paves the way to novel operational approaches to many, many scientific issues.  Our metatheoretic starting point is what we term testable rationalism: experimental previsions arising from top-down, deductive mathematical/topological approaches.
