heuristic relevance adaptive logic deductive relevance abduction DN-explanation
A general logical-philosophical framework will be developed that will enable us to explicate forms of relevance that occur in human reasoning processes. Both deductive and heuristic relevance and their interrelation will be taken into account. Moreover, the general framework will also be used to tackle problems in philosophy of science. More specifically, problems concerning DN-explanations and abduction-processes.
