Epistemic Stances Towards Theories - Acceptance Use and Pursuit (Barseghyan-2015) is an attempt to answer the following question: What epistemic stances can be taken towards a theory?
See Epistemic Stances Towards Theories for more details.
There are three distinct stances that one can take towards a theory:
- acceptance: one can take the theory as the best available description of its object;
- use: one can take the theory as a useful tool for practical applications;
- pursuit: one can take the theory as worthy of further elaboration.
