Chapter Summary

The MUL.APIN treatise was composed near the dawn of scientific endeavor. It presents an analysis with the assumption that its composite form reflects processes underlying the articulation of a written science. The chapter assumes that the treatise has an historical-cumulative aspect. It attempts to make analysis as theory-neutral as possible by developing and applying a naturalistic analytic method, in an effort to open the text up to further analysis rather than restrict it to one interpretive perspective alone. The chapter explores the text for evidence that writing may have played a causal role in conceptual change and the emergence of science. A progression toward a more conventional, explicit, and procedurally complete text suggests an increasing grasp of requirements on text interpretation.

Keywords: MUL.APIN; written science
