  2. 2. PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE VIDENSKABSTEORI > METODE > TEORI > RAPPORTEN > AKADEMISK TILGANGMethod, Theory Keywords: How to work with‐ and write an academic report with a relevant  and Approach use of the subject of philosophy of science (PoS) in e‐concept development. Introduction Scope: Reflection on learning. The scientific work with: concepts, research to the Concepts and the design of the solution in the given subject area and in the academia. Note on Literature to be Used International class: Danish class: Lisa Bartolotti (2010):  Carsten Rønn (2006):  An Introduction to the Philosophy of Science.  Almen introduktion for  Polity, UK.  professionsuddannelserne. Alinea, DK.

PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE VIDENSKABSTEORI > METODE > TEORI > RAPPORTEN > AKADEMISK TILGANGMethod, Theory and Approach The extended stratification model. Carsten Rønn 2006 A Good Theory Is Practical Meta theory Meta level Analysis of the epistemological (knowledge, why do we know),  ontological (being, existense and reality),  ethic and scientific basis of the theory. Level of theory Analysis of the strength of the formal,  SCIENCE functional, pragmatic type of theory.  What are the emperical variables,  the hypothetic variables? Data level Analysis of the emperical level Reality
  4. 4. PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE VIDENSKABSTEORI > METODE > TEORI > RAPPORTEN > AKADEMISK TILGANGMethod, Theory and Approach A Good Theory By studying multiple theories you can understand different relations Is Practical between ways of creating several perspectives on the same concept. By looking at the meta theoretical aspects, the science of theory, you can develop a critical approach to knowledge as a network between the  investigator and the investigated concepts. Knowledge as a network means coherent knowledge: Models, theory and  research fit together and validates each other consistently.

PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE VIDENSKABSTEORI > METODE > TEORI > RAPPORTEN > AKADEMISK TILGANGMethod, Theory and Approach A Good Theory A model of the construction Is Practical of critical knowledge through the dynamic relations between empirical data and theory Meta theory (Rønn 2006) Meta theories ontology, epistemology, ethics methodology Space of reflexivity THEORY  EMPIRICAL DATA KNOWLEDGE
  6. 6. PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE VIDENSKABSTEORI > METODE > TEORI > RAPPORTEN > AKADEMISK TILGANGMethod, Theory and Approach ABSTRACTION For example concepts, theories A Good Theory and models of reality and relations Is Practical REDUCTION  OF COMPLEXITY CONCRETE From the concrete The reality we meet per se.  to abstraction. Validated knowledge is produced by a scientific approach. When I analyze I keep in mind a certain coherent structure for my thinking. That is a relation between analysis and produced synthesis. When I make a synthesis, a structure of analytic work, I use the several parts of my former analyses as grounds for further development.
