The second area of relevance is more at formal and methodological level of philosophy of science. The logical analysis and techniques of the Jain philosophical tradition i.e. Anekant may have important bearing that leads to the formal studies of the conceptual and methodological framework of science. Syadvad that have given significantly palpable logic's may be compared to the law of probability. It may have an important impact on natural sciences. A similar relevance for the conceptional foundations of the social science could be seen in Jain Action Theory. The concept of action has proved to be a foundational concept in the philosophy of social science and hence there is possibility of fruitful exploration.
