Science/Theory/Medawar: thesis: the genre of a science article is bastardising per se, because it is inductive and functional-argumentative. Instead: "chronological-autobiographical narrative style".

Science/Theory/Medawar: (1963): "Is the scientific treatise a fraud?"
Thesis: the scientific treatise as a text type represents a fraud.
It was standardized in the twenties and forties and is still the most common today.
Medawar: it provides a fictitious and idealized representation of the knowledge process, because it misrepresents thought processes. It intends to bring the logical structure of research into accord with the principles of inductive epistemology._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
