The True-Fit Hypothesis

Apresentação de João Pinheiro.

It will be hypothesized that there is an internal relation between true contents and their evolutionary success conditions – the True-Fit Hypothesis (TFH).

We will start by showing how the TFH can be derived from within the roughly pragmatic Interactivist Theory-Model of Functions applied to contents as truth-bearers, while emphasis will be given to beliefs qua representations as vehicles of contents.
