Specialization as defined in Wikipedia:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"Concept B is aspecialisationof concept A if and only if:

We then call B as special case of A, it seems evident from the definition that in no case, given this definition, can A be simultaneously a special case of B, because it would be in contradiction and that conceptual system would be inconsistent.

- every instance of concept B is also an instance of concept A; and
- there are instances of concept A which are not instances of concept B"

Should scientific theories(mathematically founded) follow this logic or can you think of any example that wouldn't necessarily? In other words is this a requirement for consistent scientific theories?
