State-spaces and meaning relations among predicates

Topoi 10 (1):35-42 (1991)
Abstract
It has often been suggested that the meaning of terms is theory dependent. Bas van Fraassen has proposed a particular way of inferring which sentences are true in virtue of meaning, given a theory in so-called state-space format. I examine his claims by means of simple examples.
