Text topic: METHODOLOGY OF MODERN SOCIAL RESEARCH – PROBLEMS AND PERSPECTIVES
Text author: Лука Нешковић
Measurability of truth in science occurs within the framework of methodology, which we also define as the science of science. It is often forgotten that science, as an activity of the spirit, rests on the philosophical assumptions that the truth exists, that it can be known,and that it is a value in itself. Bypassing these premises, that is, taking science as a thing that is given, often invokes cyclic phenomena in its spheres, in which not only there is no new knowledge, but old cognitions are constantly recycled, filling columns with rows devoid of substance and form. In addition to focusing on the basic principles of verifiability of scientific thought, in this paper we will try to answer several general questions: What is science? What are the limits of science? What are the expectations of the scientific call and its role in the modern world?
