This project aims to understand how Ludwik Fleck describes scientific knowledge development from his conception of a "comparative epistemology" historically and socially anchored. From this point of view, we would like to focalize on the possibility of an effective communication between scientific exoteric and esoteric circles. As conclusion we will also circumscribe the incommensurability problem and also the impossibility of any comparability between distinct scientific "thinking styles" following from Flecks perspective.
