Methodology of Science and Technology

Our main area of study is logic using mathematical methods. When investigating the mathematical basics of logic both technological and theoretical sides are critical.
These 2 aspects are closely related and for the logic seen from the technological aspect to be more than just a calculating system, it is necessary to devise the logic from the theoretical side. And in this process, researching the basics of the technological aspect is paramount.
Therefore, a philosophical conception is required for the development of technological capabilities. This attitude toward technology and theory is closely associated with a field generally called the Theory of Scientific Method. Henceforth, our research lab mainly conducts research based on mathematical theory, but with a scientific theory position and philosophical reflection.
