Put another way, any new, and even more complex, theory can still possibly be true. The Logic of Science. To understand why, consider that for each accepted explanation of a phenomenon, there is always an infinite number of possible, more complex, and ultimately incorrect, alternatives.

Science often does not demand arbitration or selection criteria between models that make the same testable predictions. Retrieved 27 October The iccam of science Elliott Sober once argued along the same lines as Popper, tying simplicity with “informativeness”: A Personal View of Scientific Discovery.

One reason for doing so is that considerations of parsimony and of elegance typically pull in different directions. Simplicity as Evidence for Truth. Our preference for simplicity may be justified by its falsifiability criterion: This page was last edited on 29 Decemberat He invoked Occam’s razor against materialismstating that matter was not required by his metaphysic and was thus eliminable.
