iSPER MIC research group seminar with
Mike Felgenhauer, Plymouth Business School.
This paper studies quality requirements for different types of arguments.
The arguments either stem from sequential private experimentation or they are fabricated. For example, for model based logical arguments experimentation is possible, but manipulation is not. For regressions on a private database experimentation and manipulation are possible. The face value of the arguments required for persuasion should differ. Standards tend to be higher for a theoretical model than for an empirical analysis. We study implications for the philosophy of science (for example, field contingent quality standards and the evolution of scientific debates).
Organised by the iSPER MIC research group.
This seminar is aimed at University of Plymouth academic staff and postgraduate research students. Booking is not required but please contact FoBresearch@plymouth.ac.uk if you have any questions.
