The Principle of Causation as a Basis of Scientific Method
The basic condition underlying the entire dimension of scientific research is the firm belief in the causal inevitability of natural phenomena. It is the scientist's job to seek to identify the causes of such phenomena. He is furthermore expected to discover the interrelationships of cause and effect. Accordingly we can assert that scientific research, especially as it has developed after the Renaissance, can be considered to be primarily the practical application of the principle of causation based on observation, analysis (deductive or inductive), experiment, formation of hypothesis, and the formulation of theories and models.
