Scientific practice has been rapidly evolving in the last years under the pressure of
developments in computer science and technology. In this paper we present some of the
results of our research activity at the boundary between computer science and philosophy
of science started in 1997 under Marco Somalvico's impulse and guidance. In particular,
we discuss two roles that multiagent systems can play in scientific discovery. From the
one hand, they can support scientific practice; from the other hand, they can represent
scientific results. The theoretical framework presented in this paper is exemplified in
concrete by illustrating specific implemented systems, both taken from the literature
and developed by ourselves.
