Will science and proven experience converge or diverge? : The ontological considerations

Persson, Johannes LU (2019) p.97-106
Abstract
Proven experience can be shared. Given this, we cannot assume that the character of proven experience is always manifest as a physical token in each individual sharing it. But the token might still exist somewhere. Perhaps that is a condition of the proven experience’s existence. Something similar could have been accepted as true of scientific knowledge, especially if those who argued that scientific claims were only shorthand for more complicated claims about observations had been right. But it seems that they were not. Hence there might be an ontological difference explaining why there will always be a netto divergence between science and proven experience.
