My work progressed in three directions:
I developed a purely formal definition of ‘term t is theoretical in theory T’;
I proposed a precise explication of – ‘theories T and T’ are incommensurable’;
I came to interesting ideas about sociology and hermeneutics, as well as some minor ideas discussed in a number of papers.
