Accept the sufficient reason theorem and its deduction from the definition of sufficient reason and the second law.
The way reasons integrate with the existing laws of scientific change is not entirely clear. The sufficient reason theorem aims to show the causal force of a sufficient reason in determining what an agent accepts. From the definition of a sufficient reason, and the second law, one can deduce the sufficient reason theorem which shows how a sufficient reason leads to acceptance.
Theories To Accept
- Sufficient Reason theorem (Palider-2019): A theory becomes accepted by an agent, when an agent has a sufficient reason for accepting it.
Questions To Accept
- Theory Acceptance without Sufficient Reason: How do theories become accepted without a sufficient reason, i.e. in the cases of circularity or theories without a reason?
This modification attempts to answer the following question(s):
- Sufficient Reason and Theory Acceptance: What role do sufficient reasons play in theory acceptance?
The modification is currently being evaluated; a verdict is pending.
