In this chapter, the answer of systematicity theory to the question what science is is compared with answers that have been given in the history of philosophy. The aim of this chapter is to gain additional argumentative support to the main thesis of the book. Most of the historical answers to the question what science is are special cases of the answer given in this book, thus indirectly supporting its main thesis. The others are shown to be compatible with the main thesis in one way or other.

Keywords:   aristotle, descartes, kant, logical empiricism, karl popper, thomas kuhn, paul feyerabend, nicholas rescher
