Abstract

Se distinguen dos acepciones del término “contexto de descubrimiento”: La acepción tradicional, que lo contrasta con el contexto de la justificación, y otra, más reciente, que lo relaciona con la metodología de inferencia causal. Curiosamente, el propio Reichenbach suscribió la segunda acepción, y no es coincidencia que su aportación al desarrollo del campo del descubrimiento causal haya sido capital. Se defiende la vigencia de esta metodología en todas las ciencias empíricas, incluidas las ciencias físicas. I distinguish two notions of the “context of discovery”. The traditional notion opposes it to the context of justification but another, more recent, notion relates it to the methodology of causal inference. Reichenbach himself seems to have subscribed the more recent notion and, not surprisingly, his contribution to the field of causal discovery has been paramount. I defend the applicability of the methodology of causal discovery to all empirical sciences, including the physical sciences
