dc.description.abstractIn this article, I deal with the role of hypothesis in the scientific methodology of Isaac Newton, Francis Bacon and René Descartes. The first paragraph is about hypothesis in Newton’s lexicon, especially trying to understand the meaning of his famous hypotheses non fingo. The second paragraph deals with Bacon’s methodology, arguing especially that his epistemology was the first to propose an artificial way for inductive inferences, also giving up all hypotheses in science. The third paragraph shows how Descartes, following Bacon’s traces and reading his methodology in the light of the idea of a Mathesis Universalis based on mental evidence, structures a full hypothetical-deductive methodology, charging metaphysics with the analytical phase and depriving experiments of any role in it. The fourth paragraph, on Newton again, tries to understand Newton’s specific account of hypothesis as an auxiliary phase in the scientific discovery, and what really differentiates Newton from his contemporaries, Boyle and Hooke.pt
