Mathematical spaces often form a hierarchy, i.e., one space may inherit all the characteristics of a parent space. For instance, all inner product spaces are also normed vector spaces…
Informational Realism.pdf (application/pdf Object) – What is the ultimate nature of reality? This paper defends an answer in terms of informational realism (IR). It does
so in three stages. First, it is shown that, within the debate about structural realism (SR), epistemic (ESR) and ontic
(OSR) structural realism are reconcilable by using the methodology of the levels of abstractions. It follows that
OSR is defensible from a structuralist-friendly position. Second, it is argued that OSR is also plausible, because
not all related objects are logically prior to all relational structures… Third, it is suggested that an ontology of structural objects for OSR can reasonably be developed in terms of informational objects, and that Object Oriented Programming provides a flexible and powerful methodology with which to clarify and make precise the concept of “informational object”… the world is the totality of informational objects dynamically interacting with each other.
Every day, reporters and researchers from the Times examine statements by members of Congress, the president, cabinet secretaries, lobbyists, people who testify before Congress and anyone else who speaks up in Washington. We research their statements and then rate the accuracy on our Truth-O-Meter – True, Mostly True, Half True, Barely True and False. The most ridiculous falsehoods get our lowest rating, Pants on Fire.
We also rate the consistency of public officials on our Flip-O-Meter using three ratings: No Flip, Half Flip and Full Flop.
