entrenchment


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A predicate is entrenched if it is true as a matter of historical fact that it has been used to formulate true predictions. Goodman argued that this is the only property separating well-behaved, ‘projectible’ predicates from badly-behaved but syntactically simple predicates that can be defined. See Goodman's paradox.
