Ein logisch-pragmatisches Modell Von deduktiv-nomologischer erklärung (systematisierung)

Erkenntnis 17 (3):321 - 347 (1982)
Abstract
The present paper first shows that the validity of deductive-nomological (D-N) explanations (systematizations) depends in general on the interpretation context of the predicates involved in the explanation. Therefore, no logical-semantical model can be adequate. This problem is solved by relativisation of the validity criteria on both the confirmation context and the definition context of the premisses. Based upon this, a logical-pragmatical model of D-N explanation is developed. Thereby, especially explanations of laws and global explanations are taken into consideration, since these can be regarded as prototypes of scientific explanation.
