Techniques and Methods of Science from a Structuralist Point of View
In the first part I want to explain what the main metatheoretical aspects of the Structuralist Theory of Science are. It will be illustrated which technical tools within the Structuralist’s program are developed, which make possible a lot of applications to empirical sciences. One of the main applications is reconstructions of empirical theories within a semantic approach founded on informal set theory. These techniques will be illustrated within Quantum Theories like Wave Mechanics and Matrix Mechanics. Finally I want to discuss how analogy could be comprehended as an intertheoretical relation within this metatheoretical frame.
