The Problem of Philosophical Assumptions and Consequences of Science.
This paper argues that science is not dependent on philosophical assumption and does not entail philosophical consequences. The concept of dependence (on assumptions) and entailment is understood logically, that is, are defined via consequence operation. Speaking more colloquially, the derivation of scientific theorems does not use philosophical statements as premises and one cannot derive philosophical theses from scientific assertions. This does not mean that science and philosophy are completely separated. In particular, sciences leads to some philosophical insights, but it must be preceded by a hermeneutical interpretation.
