On comparison of theories by their contents

Studia Logica 48 (4):617 - 622 (1989)
Abstract
Popper's definition of verisimilitude was criticized for its paradoxical consequences in the case of false theories. The aim of this paper is to show that paradoxes disappear if the falsity content of a theory is defined with help of dCn or Cn –1.
