Semantics I 68
Semantics / theory / Fraassen: semantic terms for theories: empirical adequacy and strength, truth and logical strength. - Theories have always metaphysical baggage. (> Metaphysics / Fraassen) - Fraassen per: that is, they are not empirically minimal - minimally empirically: not equivalent with all logically more powerful models. - ((s) that is ambitious enough.) - What now looks like metaphysics, can bring new phenomena to light tomorrow. - Empirical adequacy: always goes beyond the observable, even in the future.
