Harv,

>>>”There isn't a complete philosophical account of science as a superior epistemological enterprise…”>”(‘Satisfying’ and ‘complete’) don't mean the same thing and I'm afraid that something being complete is much more of a demanding requirement than something satisfying certain conditions.”>”My exact position is that antirealism fails in particular areas where realism does not.”>”Your reasoning is… only as good as your assumptions…”>” I'm always a little quesy whenever someone mentions Gödel's incompleteness theorem…”>” I believe I could take any philosophical position and use your argument to nullify any preferential view.”>” This amounts to extreme skepticism but it itself is not justifiable.”
