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.
I 66
Verification/Axiom/Theory/Field: E.g. "verifiable" is part of a theory that does not yet have the new axiom.
II 104
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.
