To Save the Semantic View: An Argument for Returning to Suppes' Interpretation

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
Recent work on the semantic view of scientific theories is highly critical of the position. This paper identifies two common criticisms of the view, describes two popular alternatives for responding to them, and argues those responses do not suffice. Subsequently, it argues that retuning to Patrick Suppes’ interpretation of the position provides the conceptual resources for rehabilitating the semantic view.
