A Counterpart of Occam’s Razor

  • Karl Menger
Part of the Vienna Circle Collection book series (VICC, volume 10)


This chapter combines two papers on a counterpart of the famous methodological tool developed by Occam in the 14th century: [1960, 6], on the use of the counterpart in ontology, and [1961, 1], on its semantical applications. By combining the two papers repetitions have been avoided and the introductions merged. Other changes are minor.
