A. On a principle of flexibility of scientific truth -- From a deeper scrutiny of the foundations of scientific truth it follows that every scientific statement referring to observations should possess a certain minimum degree of flexibility. In other words, no set of two-valued truths can be established with the expectation that this set ultimately will stand the test of experience. Formulations of scientific truth intrinsically must be many-valued.
