Abstract [en]

In order to test theories scientists use statements about observations and experiments. How  these test statements should be selected is a problem in Critical Rationalism. Different solutions to this problem are discussed. It is argued that test statements can be tested and critically discussed by comparing them with other test statements or by deriving unproblematic test statements.
