Reliability Theory/Rorty: danger of being restricted to occasional studies! It has not yet succeeded to scrap a justification process, maing it possible to compare good and bad scientists.
The only question that arises in this area is how and why justification patterns change. This is no investigation of justification processes in relation to truthfulness.
One should regard "true" as an adjective of approval,with Sellars and Brandom and not the description. ((s) contrary to Rorty, "Truth": property)._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
