Schindler to PSA

Samuel Schindler's paper "Convergence on the Kuhnian view of Theory Choice" has been accepted for presentation at the upcoming meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association in New Orleans.


The Kuhnian view of theory choice (post Structure) leaves a lot of space for a diversity of theory choice preferences. It remains mysterious, however, how scientists could ever converge on a theory, given this diversity. This paper argues that there is a solution to the problem of convergence which can be had even on Kuhn’s own terms.
