At the same time, the norms we arrive at can (or should, ideally)23 function as a corrective and guide to subsequent scientists, and, insofar as the methodological theory is generally well-confirmed, they will be asked to resist a number of prima facie counterexamples. Clearly this method has much in common with MRE, the main difference appearing to lie in the database: in philosophy of science we use scientist’s judgements, with Goodman’s original MRE those of ordinary people.

My underlying conception of the relationship between common sense and science is that the latter builds on, refines, supplements and to an extent corrects the former, rather than completely overhauling it. ) This conception fits, as I see it, with the idea of the web of belief as an evolving, holistic network: common sense gives us only an unsystematic and underspecified realm of cognitive activity which what we call scientific thought offers our (surely) best development of; it is not a self-standing realm which science competes with.
