Jr. Henry E. Kyburg

In the previous chapter, it was considered in very broad terms what can happen when the ties are cut between observability and certainty. More needs to be proved, however, before the framework developed can be applied to the types of real theories of interest: quantum mechanics, relativity, and other such highbrow creations. Particularly, close observation at the nature of those statements is needed in the corpus of practical certainties that comprise the analytical observational content of the corpus that we get from the sorts of theories accepted. Consideration of choices among distinct theories is needed, if such there be, having the same analytical observational content.

Keywords:   observability, certainty, quantum mechanics, relativity, corpus
