On comparison of theories by their contents
TLDR
The aim of this paper is to show that paradoxes disappear if the falsity content of a theory is defined with help of dCn or Cn−1. Expand

In the paper ordering relations for comparison of verisimilitude of theories are introduced and discussed. The relations refer to semantic analysis of the results of theories, in particular toExpand
Relevance and verisimilitude
ConclusionPopper's definition looked initially promising provided that the restriction of classical logic was removed. As we have seen, this promise is not fulfilled. The search for a satisfactoryExpand
Verisimilitude and Truthmaking
I provide and defend a hyper-intensional account of verisimilitude within the truthmaker framework.

Things, of course, get vastly more complicated when we turn to the more typical kind of theories, i.e., theories formulated in a first-order language. But the idea underlying the above definition ofExpand

TLDR
A new account of logical content is used to develop a definition of verisimilitude that is close to Popper’s original account and comparison to a similar approach by Schurz and Wiengartner show certain advantages. Expand
An impossibility theorem for verisimilitude
TLDR
It is shown that Arrow’s well-known impossibility theorem is instrumental in bringing the ongoing discussion about verisimilitude to a more general level of abstraction, and that no qualitative unifying procedure of a functional form can simultaneously satisfy the requirements of Unanimity, Independence of irrelevant alternatives and Non-dictatorship at the level of sentence variables.

Some Remarks on Popper’s Qualitative Criterion of Verisimilitude
The paper sets up a general framework for defining the notion of verisimilitude. Popper’s own account of verisimilitude is then located within this framework; and his account is defended on theExpand
A note on verisimilitude and relativization to problems
This note aims at critically assessing a little-noticed proposal made by Popper in the second edition ofObjective Knowledge to the effect that verisimilitude of scientific theories should be madeExpand
