Science, art and revelation: Or chromatic theory for interdisciplinary knowledge


Abstract


After several centuries of science, there is no consensus between scientists and science thinkers as to whether or not there is something that deserves to be called «scientific method» and, if so, whether or not it is unique and universal. So, considering all the science accumulated so far, can we find some common shared idea? To begin with, what does understanding mean in science? We should prove three suppositions: first, that the scientific method exists and is unique. The second, that we can gain a panoramic view of the map of general knowledge by using it. And the third, that it inspires not only the acquisition of new knowledge, but also how to disseminate it, that is, a complete theory for teaching.
