Accept the new definition of compatibility criteria as criteria for determining whether two elements are compatible or incompatible.
The current definition of compatibility criteria concerns only theories and not other epistemic elements. However, since the notion of compatibility concerns all epistemic elements, the definition of compatibility criteria should also concern all epistemic elements, not just theories. Thus a new definition of the term is needed.
Theories To Accept
- Compatibility Criteria (Fraser-Sarwar-2018): Criteria for determining whether two elements are compatible or incompatible.
Theories To Reject
- Compatibility Criteria (Barseghyan-2015): Criteria for determining whether two theories are compatible or incompatible.
This modification attempts to answer the following question(s):
- Compatibility Criteria: What is compatibility criteria? How should it be defined?
The modification is currently being evaluated; a verdict is pending.
