    Truth Approximation by Concretization in Capital Structure Theory. Kuipers, Theo A. F., Cools, Kees & Hamminga, Bert - 1994 - In B. Hamminga & N. De Marchi (eds.), Idealization Vi: Idealization in Economics. Rodopi. pp. 205--228.
    This paper supplies a structuralist reconstruction of the Modigliani-Miller theory and shows that the economic literature following their results reports on research with an implicit strategy to come "closer-to-the-truth" in the modern technical sense in philosophy of science.

  3. Epistemology From the African Point of View.Bert Hamminga - 2005 - Poznan Studies in the Philosophy of the Sciences and the Humanities 88 (1):57-84.
    In the traditional African view, knowledge is not acquired by labor but "given" by the ancestors. Second, it is immediately social: not "I" know, but "we" know. Thirdly, knowledge is not universal but local tribal : other tribes have different knowledge. Knowledge has it "biological variations" like all other things in nature. The ensuing logic is worked out in this article. Modern African society, changed as it is by the advent of western thought, should be understood in the awareness of (...)

    Knowledge Cultures: Comparative Western and African Epistemology.Bert Hamminga (ed.) - 2005 - Rodopi.
    This volume compares the western ideas of knowledge with the African. It aims at creating a mirror through which the western knowledge culture can look at itself through an unusual and interesting angle. The culture of Sub-Saharan Africa is the substance from which we, in this book, have tried to construe an epistemological mirror.

  6. Constructive Realism and Scientific Progress.Bert Hamminga - 2005 - Poznan Studies in the Philosophy of the Sciences and the Humanities 83 (1):317-336.
    This paper exploits the language of structuralism, as it has recently been developed with stunning effectiveness in defining the relations between confirmation, empirical progress and truth approximation, to concisely clarify the fundamental problem of the classical Lakatos concept of scientific progress, and to compare its way of evaluation to the real problems of scientists facing the far from perfect theories they wish to improve and defend against competitors.I opt basically for the structuralist terminology adopted in Kuipers (2000), because that is (...)

  8. Language, Reality and Truth: The African Point of View.Bert Hamminga - 2005 - Poznan Studies in the Philosophy of the Sciences and the Humanities 88 (1):85-116.
    In the traditional African view, words and sentences are not viewed as being liable to objective reflective truth/falsehood-judgments. It is not a person-word-reality-view, but a person-word-person-view: the sender's words are units of orally produced energy that have the power to improve or degenerate the receiver's vitality. Words received can make you more powerful by increasing your confidence and your control over your environment. But they can equally well harm (parts of) you, by discouraging you in certain endeavors. From the traditional (...)

    The Pozna view is about the logical structure of theories, about what such theories claim and how rationally to judge and improve them. In the context of this volume it is relevant to explore what the Pozna view and the African ideas about knowledge have to say about one another.
