In Praise of Scientific Theory




"It's unfortunate the way the word 'theory' is used," said philosopher of science Peter Godfrey-Smith. "To say something is a theory is to say it's been expressed as an idea. It's not to say anything about whether the claim is justified or not justified -- true or false."
