This paper includes a revision of ‘Metatickles and Ratificationism’,PSA 1986, Volume 1, and expands two-fold upon that paper, which is confined for the most part to material presented to members of the Philosophy of Science Association at its 1986 meetings. I am grateful to Włodzimierz Rabinowicz for criticism and many useful suggestions, and, as always, to Willa Freeman-Sobel, for her valuable comments on every draft.
