Lutz, Sebastian (2011) On an Allegedly Essential Feature of Criteria for the Demarcation of Science. [Published Article]
This is the latest version of this item.
Laudan’s argument against the possibility of a demarcation criterion for scientiﬁc theories rests on establishing that any criterion must be a necessary and sufﬁcient condition. But Laudan’s argument at most establishes that any criterion must provide a necessary condition and a possibly different sufﬁcient condition. His own claims suggest that such a criterion is possible.
