Are Our Best Physical Theories (Probably and/or Approximately) True?
There is good reason to suppose that our best physical theories are false. Moreover, I will argue, we quite literally have no idea what it might mean to claim that they are approximately true. Nonetheless, the belief that our best current physical theories will prove to be similar to our best future physical theories plays an important role in inquiry.
