In practical application, the scientific method provides a methodology whereby only verifiable, reproducible empirical experiments subjected to doubt/skepticism lead to a justifiable approximation of reality <Pelzek> (talk) 06:52, 11 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format and provide a reliable source if appropriate. Paper9oll (🔔📝) 08:05, 11 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wow, as a scientist it always amazes me how today we seem to conveniently leave out "controlled experimentation". We leave it out now because biologists and climate scientists would have to omit half their work.[edit]

Control in experiments is critical for internal validity, which allows you to establish a cause-and-effect relationship between variables. (talk) 17:23, 13 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Remember that this is a forum for discussing the content of the article. Do you wish to propose a change? RockMagnetist(talk) 17:27, 13 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Reference correction[edit]

Text "In particular, Paul Feyerabend, in the 1975 first edition of his book Against Method, argued against there being any universal rules of science;[17]" points to incorrect reference. "Against Method" is currently reference [139] Feyerabend, Paul K., Against Method, Outline of an Anarchistic Theory of Knowledge, 1st published, 1975. Reprinted, Verso, London, 1978. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:09, 24 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unless you have read the citation given, it is most likely a better secondary source, which is what we prefer. CV9933 (talk) 10:32, 24 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
