|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.

Verifiability/verification/Popper: one examines the theories by deriving them from sets of lesser generality (deduction). These records must be verifiable themselves in the same way, ad infinitum. No regress if one renounces the ultimate justification by deduction. We do not demand that each set will actually be verified, but only that each set should be verifiable. Every single verifiable, not all verified.
Reproducibility/Repeatability: the controversy over whether there are repeatable, unique operations, cannot be decided within the science, it is "metaphysical".
VsFalsifiability: there are arguments that a theoretical system can never be definitively falsified. There are always some possible ways out. For example, ad hoc inserted auxiliary hypotheses.
Falsifiability/Popper: We will mark the empirical method just by the exclusion of those procedures.
Definition degree of probation: depends on whether a theory solves more or fewer problems (more exactly). From probation one cannot indicate to the results of future tests. This has no probabilty.
Definition verifiability: varies in scope.
Animal: the amoeba cannot critically behave to their expectations or hypotheses, it cannot imagine: they are a part of it._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
