    This view point is supported by other scholars of science. For instance, Greenwald, argued: "One's preliminary hypotheses have a decided advantage in the judgment process.?
    According to the second conception, truth resides I in nature and is to be got at only through the evidence of the senses: apprehension leads by a direct pathway to comprehension, and the scientist's task is essentially one of discernment.

    A) Exploring a new hypothesis

    B) Exploring a new thing
