The thesis about the higher degree of scientific knowledge, in comparison to everyday knowledge in particular, is unfolded in nine dimensions. This means that it is claimed that science is more systematic regarding its descriptions, explanations, predictions, defense of knowledge claims, critical discourse, epistemic connectedness, ideal of completeness, knowledge generation, and representation of knowledge. Each of these claims is argued for by a large number of diverse scientific examples, encompassing the natural and the social sciences, mathematics, and the humanities.

Keywords:   systematicity, descriptions, explanations, predictions, defense of knowledge claims, critical discourse, epistemic connectedness, ideal of completeness, knowledge generation, representation of knowledge
