Problems in the System of Scientific Knowledge


Problems play a crucial role in science. However, to correctly understand this role, it is necessary to have an adequate model of scientific knowledge. Here we use the most advanced and complete model called the modal stratified bond model of comprehensive knowledge systems. According to this model, problems are a specific kind of knowledge called erotetic knowledge generating the extensive erotetic system (modality) of scientific knowledge. Here we give a brief exposition of this system analyzing properties and aspects with the aim to determine the best form of problem description.
