differences between proposition and hypothesis
Difference Between Hypothesis and Aim | Difference Between
Mention should here be made of influential criticisms of the identitytheory by Saul Kripke and David Chalmers respectively. It will not bepossible to discuss them in great detail, partly because of the factthat Kripke's remarks rely on views about modality, possible worldssemantics, and essentialism which some philosophers would want tocontest, and because Chalmers' long and rich book would deserve alengthy answer. Kripke (1980) calls an expression a rigid designator ifit refers to the same object in every possible world. Or in counterparttheory it would have an exactly similar counterpart in every possibleworld. It seems to me that what we count as counterparts is highlycontextual. Take the example ‘water is H2O’. Inanother world, or in a twin earth in our world as Putnam imagines(1975), the stuff found in rivers, lakes, the sea would not beH2O but XYZ and so would not be water. This is certainlygiving preference to real chemistry over folk chemistry, and so far Iapplaud this. There are therefore contexts in which we say that on twinearth or the envisaged possible world the stuff found in rivers wouldnot be water. Nevertheless there are contexts in which we couldenvisage a possible world (write a science fiction novel) in whichbeing found in rivers and lakes and the sea, assuaging thirst andsustaining life was more important than the chemical composition and soXYZ would be the counterpart of H2O.
Hypothesis Definition, Checklist, and Examples
Due to naturally occuring variablilty, two seperate measurements (even of the same phenomenon) will almost always give different results. For example, assume I measure my happiness after a run on Monday, and I measure it again after a run on Wednesday. It would not be surprising if the results are different each time, since there are many factors that impact mood. Therefore, the goal of hypothesis testing is not to see if there is any difference between sets of measurements (there almost always will be), but rather to see if the differences are unlikely to be due to random variation. If so, we can say that our result is statistically significant. The general procedure is as follows:
So whats the difference between an educated and wild guess?
(On all of these interpolated-octavetables, vertically adjacent numbers differ by a factor of 2.) Note thequasi-linear stretches, and the one-year spacing of the teen years thatmay serve as a convenient basis for comparison with other stages oflife: Musicians and music lovers may like to "scale" theirlives using twelve steps per octave to match the chromatic (equaltempered) half-tone musical scale.
