Abstract:

This article discusses some continuous limit cases of Susan Haack’s crossword puzzle metaphor for the coherent development and foundation of science. The main objective of this discussion is to build a bridge between Haack’s foundherentism and the epistemological framework of objective cognitive constructivism, including its key metaphor of objects as tokens for eigen-solutions. The historical development of chemical affinity tables is used to illustrate our arguments.
Keywords: Bayesian statistics; Cognitive constructivism; Eigen-solutions; Foundherentism; Invariant entities; Münchhausen trilemma; Objectivity criteria; Ontology; Statistical significance.
