Metascience


core definition

Metascience is research into science as a developer of knowledge.


explanatory context

Etymologically, it is something coming 'after' science, or 'about' science.

 

Science is here taken to refer to any empirically grounded area of enquiry, through which theoretical statements about the nature of the world (physical, natural or social) are made. This position is synonomous with such terms as 'Wissenschaft', 'scienza' and 'nauka'.
