Methodological Naturalism Paper

I had a paper published on methodological naturalism that can be found in a PDF file at the following link.

The Status of Methodological Naturalism as Justified by Precedent

Abstract

方法論的自然主義は、科学的方法論における不可欠なヒューリスティクス(発見的方法)として、その重要性をますます高めている。同理論を採用した科学の成功例、及び同理論のもたらす制約の効率性を鑑みるに、方法論的自然主義の活用は今後も必要不可欠と考えられる。本稿においては、方法論的自然主義の出現の歴史、現在の状況と、常に難解かつ反直観的である科学研究の分野での利用に関する将来的展望について検討する。

Methodological naturalism has increasingly proven its worth as an essential heuristic in scientific methodology. Its continued use is strongly warranted by the precedent of the success of the science that employs it, and the efficiency of its constraints. This paper examines the historical emergence of methodological naturalism, its current status, and future expectations related to its usage in areas of scientific inquiry that are evermore counterintuitive and complex.
