Can Scienctific Theories Withstand the Test of Time?

Alfredo Cid Ph.D.(c)

Lecturer in Philosophy

Scientific realism is a positive claim about the content of our scientific theories and models, which recommends that we believe in both observable and unobservable aspects of the world. A formidable rival is the pessimistic meta-induction argument. Based on empirical premises, it cuts at the knees of scientific realism suggesting that as scientific knowledge develops, all past and present theories will eventually be rejected for newer and better ones. Prof. Cid will explain, identifying the challenges and opportunities of this debate.
