Research 

Research is a systematic investigation of a particular topic or phenomenon with the purpose of generating new knowledge, building on the existing scholarly work, and to solve problems that we face. Not all research is about generative universal truths. In fact, it is often not possible because nature and humans are incredibly complex, but we are able to identify trends.
