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