Abstract

In this paper I distinguish three senses of "could turn out/could have turned out" in an attempt to elucidate how each is connected to the notion of discovery and how each determines that a statement of the form 'X could turn out P' ('X could have turned out P') is true. I argue that the actuality-oriented sense of "could turn out" best captures what we ordinarily mean when we use "could turn out" or "could have turned out" in a nonevidential sense.
