چکیده

در این مقاله عدم تعیین نظریه با شواهد تجربی مورد بررسی و تحلیل قرار می­گیرد. به طوری که, استفاده از این برهان برای تشکیک در صدق نظریه­ها کفایت نمی­کند و فرض­های ضمنی و غیر­بدیهی دیگری برای این نتیجه­گیری مورد نیاز است که الزام ­آور نبوده و قابل مناقشه است.

Anti-Realistic Consequences of Under-Determination Undermined

چکیده [English]

Scrutinizing under-determination of Theories by Empirical Evidence, I purport to show this argument, in itself, does not provide a sufficient ground for skepticism about the (approximate) truth of theories. The upshot is that driving anti-realistic consequences from this argument in virtue of some other non-evident implicit assumptions is a contentious issue.
