Abstract

Following from my criticisms of Calcott’s analysis on the permissive/instructive
distinction, I rebut his claims that 1) he clarifies my measure one-to-one specificity; 2) for all
intents and purposes of his analysis his notion of precision is different from my measure of one-
to-one specificity; 3) Waddington box is a better and different model than the extension of
Woodward’s radio I propose.
