Lutz, Sebastian (Juli 2013): Empirical Adequacy in the Received View. In: Philosophy of Science
Volltext auf 'Open Access LMU' nicht verfügbar.


I show that the central notion of Constructive Empiricism, empirical adequacy, can be expressed syntactically and specifically in the Received View of the logical empiricists. The formalization shows that the Received View is superior to Constructive Empiricism in the treatment of theories involving unobservable objects or functions from observable to unobservable objects. It also suggests a formalization of ‘full empirical informativeness’ in Constructive Empiricism.
