—“Curt Doolittle: where does morally consistent fit into truth and meaning?”— Scott Claremont
categorically consistent (properties)
Internally consistent (logical)
externally correspondent (empirical)
existentially consistent (operational)
rationally consistent (rational choice)
reciprocally consistent (reciprocity or “morality”)
scope consistent (stated limits and fully accounted)
and coherent (consistent cross all those dimensions)
reciprocal = moral. (or more precisely, irreciprocal = immoral, since anything not immoral is either amoral or moral)
These are not statements of proof, but tests of falsification.
The inclusion of rationality and reciprocity is necessary for falsification of the social sciences, and law and economics in particular.
