Abstract

OTHERS beside Prof. Dingle find this discussion “amusing”1. Each disputant is trying to show that only his philosophy is compatible with science; if he succeeded, he would surely destroy the object of his attempt. For the distinctive feature of scientific propositions, and presumably the source of their evidential value, is that they can be believed by anyone, whatever his philosophy.
