Science is a fun and interesting subject for kids because it is all around us. Some people do not realize that science is involved when in almost everything you do such as cooking, cleaning, and playing. They are relevant because philosophers of science have frequently presented 17th-century theories of scientific method as a contrast class to current philosophies of discovery. Simon, H.A., 1973, Does Scientific Discovery Have a Logic?”, Philosophy of Science, 40: 471-80.

Hempel, C.G., 1985, Thoughts in the Limitations of Discovery by Computer”, in K. Schaffner (ed.), Logic of Discovery and Diagnosis in Medicine, Berkeley: University of California Press, 115-22.

Of these 22 publications, 16 are covered in our validation dataset, of which 8 were identified by at least one of our algorithms: a 50% hit rate.
