Abstract : A decision-theoretical critique of 'semantic information measure' and other suggestions made by students of inductive logic leads to a formal statement of sequence: (1) What problem should I study, (2) What set of mutually exclusive and exhaustive hypotheses shall I test, (3) What kind of evidence shall I use, and (4) What hypothesis shall I accept.
