More than an explanatory model ?

Post by Xavier Gelard »

Can we say that the model used by Bernardo is more than an explanatory model ? I mean : if science describes the how, and not the what, and uses explanatory models, how can another explanatory model (mind is all there is) become a "truth" ? It's just something that can become verifiable by means of science (predictions that are verified or invalidated), but that doesn't mean it's what's happening actually. It's just a better (i.e. more accurate) metaphysic model than physicalism, but it cannot, as an explanatory model, pretend being the true one. Or am I missing something ?
My point is : if you say people take an explanatory model for a description of reality, your NEW explanatory model, even more accurate, will just, in the end, be ONLY an explanatory model.
