heuristic fruitfulness OR heuristic fecundity


Explanation:
Fecundity is an English word, and though it is more literal than "fruitfulness", it may be at the literary register you want.

Heuristics is simply a fancy term -- in any Eur. lg. -- for a discovery procedure or process.

I have an MA in philosophy and I've studied Popper.
