|Verification, philosophy: verification means determining the truth value ("true" or "false") of statements that refer to the observable. The admissible means of verification are determined by the theories, the statements belong to. See also verificationism, confirmation, certainty, empiricism, foundation, proof, manifestation, understanding, generalization._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments. |

Observational conditional/(s)/Definition Test/Physics/Field: physical theories are tested, in which consequences are derived via observables from premises via observables. - Sure, we also refer to the unobservable.
Verification/Axiom/Theory/Field: E.g. "verifiable" is part of a theory that does not yet have the new axiom.
Verification Conditions/Verification/Verificationism/Field: Verfication conditions (perhaps via stimuli) are given without that-clauses. - So without propositional content. - Then we have classes of verification conditions instead of proposition. - Inflationism: would say that these are not proper propositions because these must include truth conditions. - InflationismVsVerificationism._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
