In each scientific practice an underlying logic can be found, which is understood as a normative system that regulates the ways of inferring the scientific community within such practice. A normative system of this type can be represented by a system of logic, which is defined from a formal language and a set of principles of transformation of sentences of this language. However, systems of classical logic (once suitable for studies of classical physics, for example), have become obsolete in the practices of contemporary science. In this presentation we appeal to the vast project of investigation knows as “Logical Dynamics of Information and Representation” to choose a suitable representative underlying logic, that is to say, as a genuine tool for contemporary epistemology.
