What is reason? Hos should it be defined?
The notion of reason plays an important role in the analysis of historical episodes. A proper scientonomic definition of reason is therefore needed.
In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Kye Palider in 2019.
|Reason (Palider-2019)||An agent takes theory A to be a reason for theory B iff the agent accepts that A→B, employs ε, and accepts (ε, A, A→B) →ε (Should accept B).||2019|
