Recurrent transient underdetermination and the glass half full [Book Review]

Philosophical Studies 137 (1):141 - 148 (2007)
Abstract
Kyle Stanford’s arguments against scientific realism are assessed, with a focus on the underdetermination of theory by evidence. I argue that discussions of underdetermination have neglected a possible symmetry which may ameliorate the situation.
