General

Discipline

Branches of science (also referred to as “sciences”, “scientific fields”, or “scientific disciplines”) are commonly divided into three major groups:

  • Natural sciences the study of natural phenomena (including fundamental forces and biological life)
  • Formal sciences the study of mathematics and logic, which use an a priori, as opposed to factual, methodology)
  • Social sciences the study of human behavior and societies.

Natural and social sciences are empirical sciences, meaning that the knowledge must be based on observable phenomena and must be capable of being verified by other researchers working under the same conditions. — Wikipedia
