  1. S. French & H. Kamminga, On Correspondence.
    Fifteen essays are contained in this collection, all relating to Heinz Posts articleCorrespondence, Invariance and Heuristics’ (Post, 1971), also reprinted. In this article, written in (...)the heyday of the post-positivist movement, Post aims to convince his fellowphilosophers of science to bring the issue of heuristics back to the philosophical stage. Examining a wealth of theories and models from the physics and chemistry of the last 300 years, Post extracts several strategies of theory construction of which he considers the General Correspondence Principle to be the most important. According to this principle, any acceptable newtheory should explain the well-confirmed part of its predecessor. Later Post states the General Correspondence Principle more precisely and uses it with what he considers its de facto validity to argue against incommensurability, Kuhn-losses,1 and relativism. Post himself seems to support (but does not explicitly advocate) a kind of convergent realism which is most notably expressed in his credo that science progresses linearly. (shrink)
