Example text

Applying Zorn's lemma we may prove, by an easy argument, that among all ucodecidable sets of u-true sentences there are maximal ones. To each such set we may assign again an operational structure in substantially the same manner as that which we applied in assigning an operational structure to the whole set of u-true sentences. There are some points which call for clarification here, but I shall deliberately ignore them. The operational structures corresponding to maximal u-codecidable sets will be said to be the complementary structures defined by (P, u).

SIMON IDENTIFIABILITY AND THE STATUS OF THEORETICAL TERMS Much recent discussion about the structure of scientific theories has centered on the status of theoretical terms, that is, terms whose direct referents are not observables. It has been asked whether such terms are always definable, or if not definable, whether they are always eliminable. Another line of inquiry asks under what circumstances theoretical terms, or sentences containing them are meaningful; and still another asks under what circumstances they are identifiable, that is, can be estimated from observational data.
