    Solipsism: An Essay in Psychological Philosophy.Ian I. Mitroff - 1971 - Philosophy of Science 38 (3):376-394.
    The thesis of this paper is that in dealing with problems of "mind," the philosopher of mind needs to be as well grounded in his relevant sciences (e.g. psychology, anthropology) as the philosopher of the physical sciences needs to be grounded in his relevant sciences (e.g. physics). The thesis of this paper is also that the psychological analysis of solipsism and the philosophical analysis are not independent (or at least not independent in all of their aspects), and that therefore the (...)

    Systems, Inquiry, and the Meanings of Falsification.Ian I. Mitroff - 1973 - Philosophy of Science 40 (2):255-276.
    The purpose of this paper is to show that there are as many formulations of the process of falsification as there are archetypal, philosophical systems of inquiry. This paper explores several systems of inquiry which are based on Churchman's reading of the history of Western epistemology. It is argued that (1) the falsification of scientific theories can never be a purely formal process although it is perpetually open to formal exploration; (2) that contrary to current belief, falsification can never be (...)

    Towards a Behavioral Theory of Systemic Hypothesis-Testing and the Error of the Third Kind.Ian I. Mitroff & Tom R. Featheringham - 1976 - Theory and Decision 7 (3):205-220.
    Scientific ideas neither arise nor develop in a vacuum. They are always nutured against a background of prior, partially conflicting ideas. Systemic hypothesistesting is the problem of testing scientific hypotheses relative to various systems of background knowledge. This paper shows how the problem of systemic hypothesis-testing (Sys HT) can be systematically expressed as a constrained maximimization problem. It is also shown how the error of the third kind (E III) is fundamental to the theory of Sys HT.The error of the (...)
