Epistemological and Historical Implications for Elementary Particle Theories
- 62 Downloads
The epistemological credo of Einstein is further developed and specified in greater detail for practical applications. The results are applied to quasi-historical creation processes of established physical theories and to current theories for elementary particles. The outcome of these applications is then considered from epistemological viewpoints. Reasons underlying the basic difficulties of the current main stream particle theory, the standard model, are given. The steps in the creation of an alternative approach, the scalar strong interaction hadron theory, are delineated.
