Tautological Status of The Law of Theory Demarcation (Sarwar-Fraser-2018)
Is the law of theory demarcation as formulated by Sarwar and Fraser in 2018 a tautology?
As any law, the law of theory demarcation suggested Sarwar and Fraser in 2018 attempts to forbid certain courses of events, for otherwise it would lack any empirical content and would be a tautology. Thus, the question is whether the law is tautological or non-tautological, i.e. whether there are courses of action in principle forbidden by the law.
In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Patrick Fraser and Ameer Sarwar in 2018. The question is currently accepted as a legitimate topic for discussion by Scientonomy community.
