This is a reminder for:

Title: Adrian Currie
Determination & The Ripple Model of Historical Evidence

In the last decade there have been several attempts to understand the  
nature of historical evidence and thus the epistemic situation of the  
geologists, archeologists and paleontologists who exploit it. Two prominent  
accounts are surprisingly contradictory: for Carol Cleland, the present  
systematically overdetermines the past; for Derek Turner, we should expect  
historical evidence to underdetermine our hypotheses. I critique both views  
and draw on their perspectives to build a model of historical evidence  
which can accommodate both situations and provide insight to the nature of  
historical science.
