Scientific Method Process picture

 

 

Scientific method process picture

I find this a useful picture. Can anyone let me know who put it together, so I can acknowledge it properly?

  1. Looks as if it was made by "ArchonMagnus" in 2008, but happy to get further particulars.

  4. I like the sound of Lakatos. Seems closer to the actualite. Would you like to propose some alterations? I would suggest that after "Develop general theories" we add "Protect those general theories with auxiliary hypotheses till the process becomes ridiculous"
