Characteristics of Science

 

In 2012, I decided to work on a series of short expositions of what "science" is.  I've been posting these on my Google+ page but here I link to all the ones that have been completed, and compile them in a single document for readers who want something more portable than the web format they were originally written in.  Many more topics are to come, so this page will be updated periodically with new topics, but of course, you can get the latest ones by circling me on Google+.  I should add, these aren't necessarily in any coherent order, just the order I thought of them in.

Topics so far:

1: Non-ideological
2: Empirical/Rationalist feedback
3: Replication
4: Falsifiability
5: Mathematization
6: Precisification
7: Skepticism
8: Causation

My list of topics currently has 22 total topics on it, so check back for more!

Here's the pdf of Topics 1-8 collected.
