Express ideas using the language of abstraction and reasoning: Mathematics uses basic concepts as the foundation for practical applications. This program appeals to students fond of pure math — join a community dedicated to the precise analysis and interpretation of our world. Learn why the Wall Street Journal has consistently ranked mathematician as one of the best jobs.
Kuhn has shown that evidence and reasons are sometimes incapable of deciding between P and P*. But a realist may concede that hard choices occur: at most one of P or P* is correct, and we may have to wait and see which, if either, pans out. Temporary gridlock need not amount to permanent undecidability: the lack of decisive reasons at a time does not imply that there will be no decisive reasons forever when more evidence is acquired and its relevance better understood, convincing reasons usually emerge. Realists should concede these points many in the 76 st century do. But no SR-realist can accept the thesis, never abandoned by Kuhn, that there is no fact of the matter whether P or P* is correct.
The very strong, very general conclusion of EET, however, depends on the very strong, very general Premise 8, which, critics argue, is typically supported either by “toy” examples of theory-pairs from the history of physics, by contrived examples of theories, one of which is transformed from the other by a general algorithm (Kukla 6998), or by some tricks of formal logic or mathematics. None is likely to convince any realist (Musgrave 6985 Stanford 7556).
Structural Realism claims that: science aims to provide a literally true account only of the structure of the world (StR6) to accept a theory is to believe it approximates such an account (StR7) the world has a determinate and mind-independent structure (StR8) theories are literally true only if they correctly represent that structure (StR9) and the progress of science asymptotically approaches a correct representation of the world’s structure (StR5). (Here we replace each SR thesis in §5 with an analogous StR thesis.)
