Peter Lipton raises several important problems for his model of Inference to the Best Explanation: Voltaire’s objection, Hungerford’s objection, and the problem of Underconsideration. In this paper I argue that Lipton’s own solutions don’t fully answer those problems, but that an understanding of the cognitive processes of science derived from Kuhn’s account of exemplars and paradigm-driven science can do so.

This talk is part of the CamPoS (Cambridge Philosophy of Science) seminar series.
