Limits I 122
Def laws of coexistence/Fraassen: they indicate limits of possible states or simultaneous configurations. E.g. Boyles Gas Law (temperature is proportional to the volume times pressure), e.g. Newton’s law of gravity, e.g. Pauli principle (exclusion of the coexistence of electrons) - sometimes we can say that it has been deduced from theories that exclude a "distance effect".
I 123
No d.e., but a limitation of concurrent states.
