PLANCK'S PRINCIPLE

2

the notion that new scientific theories don't attain approval by a step-by-step procedure of validation which persuades opponents to believe they are true. Rather, as opponents of a new theory age and die, they're substituted by a new generation of scientists, who were aware of the theory since the formative years of their professional existence and have learned to accept it. This notion is a direct challenge to both falsificationism and verification.

PLANCK'S PRINCIPLE: "Planck's Principle is highly accepted among the science community in modern times."
