These concepts include:*Deduction*Induction*Causation*Probability*Data-modeling*Theory*Counterfactual truth*Conditional Truth*Supervenience*Continuity*Information-transmission*Evidence, and*MeasurementThough independently corroborated, these analyses support this works main thesis, which is succinctly stated in the book itself: Causal series are continuous series. Information-bearing series are continuous structure-preserving series. To know explanations is to know causes. Scientific hypotheses are correct when they eliminate discontinuities, and they eliminate discontinuities when they themselves are constitutive of information-transmissive continuities.
