On the eliminative explanation of social theories

Studia Logica 42 (2-3):331 - 345 (1983)
The paper discusses eliminative explanation in which a (social) successor theory correctively explains and, as a consequence, eliminates its predecessor theory. Technical concepts and results from general logic are applied to the explication of corrective explanation, especially to the notion of framework translation that it involves.
