Grimes on the tacking by disjunction problem

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this paper, I focus on the so-called ‘tacking by disjunction problem.’
Namely, the problem to the effect that, if a hypothesis h is confirmed by
a statement e, h is confirmed by the disjunction e ¿ f, for whatever
statement f. I show that the attempt to settle this difficulty made by
Grimes 1990, in a paper apparently forgotten by today methodologists,
is irremediably faulty.
