|Der Schluß auf die beste Erklärung|
2003, 355 S, Gb, (Gruyter)
What is a "good" explanation? By what criteria is one argument more plausible, or "truer" than another? Conclusions regarding the best explanation (abduction conclusion) play a decisive role in both everyday and scientific and academic life. Klärner discusses previous conceptions of explanation in a critical and precise manner. Examples make it easy to follow the structure of the argument, its strengths and weaknesses. This first German publication on the topic is likely to become the reference work on the conclusion regarding the best explanation.
