ANSWER BY SG Simmons
‘”It’s a hierarchy or a range of tactics”
The principle technique in testimonialism (propertarian epistemology) is “Deflation, Disambiguation, Operationalism, and Serialization”
This technique asks you to produce a series (“three points test a line” so to speak). And to use this precise language when making arguments so that your ability to infer or deduce or infer or freely associate ideas is limited to constant relations (what is logical ‘true’);
We then use multiple series and supply and demand curves to compare topics rather than ‘ideal types’.
That’s how the method works: increasing the precision of language until we are speaking in measurements. Where measurements are always commensurable.
And it is action, property, and reciprocity that makes all human experience commensurable.
