Abstract [en]

This paper claims that there are two kinds of empirical testing: intercontextual and intracontextual, depending on the intended scope of inductive generalization. Intercontextual tests would need to correct for mechanisms contributing to effects. Such mechanisms are today largely unknown. Intracontextual testing is far safer. But are not its lessons tied to a specific context? It will be shown that, to some extent, its lessons generalize beyond its context.
