Accept the new definition of compatibility criteria as criteria for determining whether two elements are compatible or incompatible.

The modification was suggested to Scientonomy community by Patrick Fraser and Ameer Sarwar on 28 January 2018.1 The modification is currently being evaluated; a verdict is pending.

Preamble

The current definition of compatibility criteria concerns only theories and not other epistemic elements. However, since the notion of compatibility concerns all epistemic elements, the definition of compatibility criteria should also concern all epistemic elements, not just theories. Thus a new definition of the term is needed.
