During the last years, in particular due to the Digital Humanities, empirical processes, data capturing or data analysis got more and more popular as part of humanities research. In this paper, we want to show that even the complete scientific method of natural science can be applied in the humanities. By applying the scientific method to the humanities, certain kinds of problems can be solved in a confirmable and replicable manner. In particular, we will argue that patterns may be perceived as the analogon to formulas in natural science. This may provide a new way of representing solution-oriented knowledge in the humanities.
