Thanks to an off-list exchange, my eyes were directed to an older
posting on Humanist (and bless the designers of the search facility). <>

Herbert Wender asks in the context of a query by you on the nature of
theory making across disciplines (“I'm looking for a discussion of
'theory' that recognises the differences across disciplines”) whether
“the old compendium of Stegmüller has found a successsor” and he
provides the German titles to the multi volume and multi part work.

Having little or no German I went in search of a volume Stegmüller’s
work published in English. Because of its French connection, I was
intrigued by The Structuralist View of Theories: A Possible Analogue of
the Bourbaki Programme in Physical Science. Unfortunately my local
research library is closed to all but students and faculty in these

I wonder if anyone subscribing to Humanist has read this or any work by
Stegmüller and would care to comment on its relevance to Humanist

Thank you
