Unfortunately, Pseudoscientific Language Is Really Useful.

[T]he question is whether “truth” in the context of Critical Rationalism is an analogy or not. I posit that it’s analogistic language just like nearly all uses of ‘truth’. The only action that can exist is attestation. And nothing can be said to be ‘true’ independent of someone’s cognition.

I’m trying to eliminate pseudoscientific language. Because pseudoscientific language is unethical and immoral. It may be efficient. It may be useful. It may even in some cases be conceptually necessary.

All disciplines rely upon such contrivances for the sake of brevity and ease.

These contrivances my be utilitarian, but that is different from saying that they are ‘true’.
