Varieties of Fictionalism
Formy fikcionalizmu
Program: Inter-academic agreement
Project leader: Mgr. Vacek Martin PhD.
Annotation:Fictionalism as a philosophical position appeared in 1980 with the publication of Hartry Field’s Science Without Numbers and Bas van Fraassen’s The Scientific Image. In them, Field and van Fraassen suggested that the aim of inquiry need not be necessarily truth, since the acceptance of a mathematical or scientific theory need not necessarily involve belief in its content. However, the view can be extended by pointing out at its usefulness in other discourses. A part of such extension is due to contrast between fictionalism and reductionism as well as between fictionalism and nonfactualism. The current literature very often confuses the positions though. The project therefore aim at both clear and transparent exposition of fictionalism, and systematic account of the main feature of fictionalism per se.
