Abstract

It has been suggested that we can tell whether two theories are equivalent by comparing the structure that they ascribe to the world. If two theories posit different structures, then they must be inequivalent. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the extent to which this desideratum holds of the different standards of equivalence that are currently on the table.
