Foundations of clinical praxiology part II: Categorical and conjectural diagnoses

Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 3 (1):101-114 (1982)
Abstract
The concepts of categorical diagnosis and conjectural diagnosis are introduced. It is argued that in diagnostic reasoning conjectural diagnosis plays a more important role than categorical diagnosis. Attention is called to the inevitable vagueness of clinical language and to the suitability of epistemic logic and fuzzy logic for diagnostic reasoning.
