1989 | Explanatory Coherence |
1 | p.4 | 17064 | 1: Coherence is a symmetrical relation between two propositions [Smart] |
2 | p.4 | 17065 | 2: An explanation must wholly cohere internally, and with the new fact [Smart] |
3 | p.4 | 17066 | 3: If an analogous pair explain another analogous pair, then they all cohere [Smart] |
4 | p.4 | 17067 | 4: For coherence, observation reports have a degree of intrinsic acceptability [Smart] |
5 | p.4 | 17068 | 5: Contradictory propositions incohere [Smart] |
6 | p.4 | 17069 | 6: A proposition's acceptability depends on its coherence with a system [Smart] |
2012 | Coherence: The Price is Right |
p.42 | p.42 | 17596 | Coherence problems have positive and negative restraints; solutions maximise constraint satisfaction |
p.43 | p.43 | 17597 | Coherence is explanatory, deductive, conceptual, analogical, perceptual, and deliberative |
p.44 | p.44 | 17598 | Explanatory coherence needs symmetry,explanation,analogy,data priority, contradiction,competition,acceptance |
p.45 | p.45 | 17599 | The best theory has the highest subjective (Bayesian) probability? |
p.45 | p.45 | 17600 | Bayesian inference is forced to rely on approximations |
p.46 | p.46 | 17602 | Verisimilitude comes from including more phenomena, and revealing what underlies |
p.46 | p.46 | 17601 | Neither a priori rationalism nor sense data empiricism account for scientific knowledge |
