Scott Brizel well there’s an issue :
the scientific method is not followed in most of the sciences.
scientific method is a shorthand summary of the overall processes but it’s not how science actually goes forth.
calling something a science means one is following and/or creating a methodology.
is there a science of analytical philosophy? i imagine there likely is.
the split into a category called Science all by itself is kind of an odd thing and doesn’t translate into every language as “science”
i may modify my original here :
science begins as an academic discipline.
the academic disciplines grew out of scholasticism movement.
all can be traced.
