Instrumentalism is the view that scientific theories are useful tools for predicting phenomena instead of true or approximately true descriptions.

Indeed, going back to the late s and s, ‘essentialism vs. instrumentalism ’ was the first big theoretical axis around which scholars sought to formulate their views and understand. Thus, Dewey’s pragmatic instrumentalism can serve as a sole model of practicing science in the advanced economies of Europe and America as well as developing countries of Africa.

Conceptual Clarification of Basic Terms. The key concepts that are associated with this study are: instrumentalism and techno-scientific : Raphael Olisa Maduabuchi, Eugene Anowai. The need for modernisation, determining the development of modern law, however, clashed with the need to preserve cultural identity rooted in national traditions.

the subjective idealist doctrine of the American philosopher John Dewey and his followers, a variety of pragmatism. In the instrumentalist view, consciousness (or intelligence, in Dewey’s terms) is a means of adaptation to changing environmental conditions: logical concepts, ideas, and scientific laws and theories are all simply instruments (hence the name “instrumen-talism”), tools.
