Two subjects are discussed: First some misleading statements in J. Weimann's above article are talked about. In the way that Weimann from the view of a Popperian describes 'the normative function of falsificationism' shows typical misinterpretations of methodology. The state of this science does not enable to give devices about what is the ultimate point of reference for empirical sciences. Second a distinction between theory of science and sciences of science is introduced. It is shown briefly that the theory of science — even if purely formal interpretated — needs the empirical foundation of sciences of science, if it aims to develop a rational reconstruction of real sciences.
