Sample text

In this book, the gentle reader will be confronted with several pertinent explications that miss that goal. Misexplications can bring about tremendous costs for the building and testing of theories. 15 To put it differently: successful explications bring sources of misunderstanding to an end. Take for instance the case of the thermometer. In the course of scientific progress, it turned out to be useful to replace the imprecise and subjective notions from normal speech, like ‘hot’ and ‘cold’, by an objective one (namely ‘temperature’).

Instead, they view theory preference as a procedure, guided by the degree of corroboration that competing theories have. In other words, they recommend preferring the theory that, ceteris paribus, has the least problems among all competing alternatives. As is well known, falsificationist methodology, going back to Karl Popper and having been refined by other representatives of Critical Rationalism, is based on the idea that all theories are fallible. Following Popper, theories that claim to be ‘scientific’ should be formulated in a way that makes it possible to test and refute them.

We have to keep in mind that Hume’s definition of morals includes an empirical statement, and, probably, a deficient one, namely, that moral action cause the psychic reactions of pleasure or pain. e. that moral action can cause pleasure or pain. 50 Whether or not an action can be named ‘moral’ solely because of its faculty to evoke pleasure or pain is not yet said. The faculty, to cause a particular sentiment, might be a necessary condition, but is it a sufficient one? A closer look reveals that the answer is in the negative.
