Rational Reconstruction, theory of science, philosophy: rational reconstruction is a collective term for attempts to justify a theory by constructing models of it that meet certain requirements such as rationality, economy, area-specific adequacy and general validity as well as verifiability. Models are the structures which result from the use of designations for objects instead of the abstract designations used in the theorems. Models can only be created for consistent statements. See also reduction, interpretation, models, empiricism, rationality.
