GARCIA JIMENEZ, Leonarda. An Epistemological Focus on the Concept of Science: A Basic Proposal based on Kuhn, Popper, Lakatos and Feyerabend. Andamios [online]. 2008, vol.4, n.8, pp.185-202. ISSN 2594-1917.

Social sciences haven't had the same development as natural sciences. This is due to two reasons: first, social sciences haven't accumulated knowledge in the same proportion as natural sciences; second, there is no clear agreement about the definition of science. Therefore, the intention of this article is to elaborate an approximation to the concept of science, based on the ideas of Popper, Kuhn, Lakatos and Feyerabend.

Keywords : Scientific knowledge; philosophy of science; epistemology; classifications of sciences; social sciences.
