The conditions of innovation in scientific research

Zbigniew Drozdowicz

Abstract


In me remarks I make an attempt to point out such conditions of innovation in science as: philosophical traditions, as well institutional relations and personalities of researchers themselves. The analyses made in them are making the basis for formulating a general thesis stating that innovation in every case has a relative character, i.e. it is dependent not just from time and place of the research made, but also from such conditions that make what could be and often was perceived as scientific innovation under one set of circumstances cannot be perceived as such on other. The diverse character of these conditions sets a fact that it is hard to design innovation in science and to assess their scale.

Keywords


role of philosophical traditions in research innovation; institutional and personal conditions of innovation
