That is to say, it is a quasi-mythical representation of something quite simple: that we must be careful in our methods of observation, that we must try to produce verifiable results, and that our endeavours should be productive. 3 In any case, each of the three aspects of "science" ("pure", applied, and social) introduces new concerns which are tantamount to new problems, as we see on page 46.
