    Abstract

    On the basis of the Suppes-Sneed structural view of sientific theories, we take a fresh look at the concept of refutability, which was famously proposed by K.R. Popper in 1934 as a criterion for the demarcation of scientific theories from non-scientific ones, e.g. pseudo-scientific and metaphysical theories.
