Conventionalism of the duhem-quine sort holds that one can always maintain the truth of the 2nd law (or any other conventional truth), come what may the backing for this claim comes from the holism of scientific theory testing (pierre duhem) or more generally, of conceptual frameworks (w v o quine): since the things we hold true form an interconnected web, any one belief or postulate that.

A scientific theory is a good theory if it satisfies two requirements, it must accurately describe a large class of observations in terms of a model that is simple enough to contain only a few elements, and it must make definite predictions about the results of future observations, for example, aristotle’s cosmological theory, which claimed.

A scientific theory is an explanation of an aspect of the natural world that can be repeatedly tested and verified in accordance with scientific method, using accepted protocols of observation, measurement, and evaluation of resultswhere possible, theories are tested under controlled conditions in an experiment in circumstances not amenable to experimental testing, theories are evaluated. In paragraph 21 of his logic of scientific discovery, karl popper characterizes with the help of two seemingly synonymous definitions the falsifiability of a theory as a logical relation between the theory itself and its basic statements.
