Abstract

This paper suggests that types of statistics used in analyzing data should be linked to logical forms of hypotheses. It presents a proposal to include the weak conditional associations of (p → q) and (q → p), along with the straight biconditional monotonic form, in a basic paradigm of logical hypothesis forms. Finally, it suggests that Goodman's flexible Z be applied in testing the validity of basic logical hypothesis forms and examines the plausibility of so doing.
