What is evidence, and how much of it means that a proposition is true? Does a partial / total lack of evidence mean that a proposition should be ignored?
Is the concept evidence more important to some subjects than others (for example, Mathematics versus Science)?
It seems to me that evidence is more important in Mathematics than in Science, due to the analytical nature of Mathematics and the experimental nature of Science. But this seems to me to be too much of a generalisation - is there a stronger argument for this? Would you even agree with the claim?
Also, it seems to me that History relies almost entirely on evidence - if there was no evidence, then History would surely be shaped by psychology. The language of the evidence must surely influence the way in which the evidence is interpreted in History, unlike in Mathematics, where there is a strict, 'emotionless' language (full of definitions). Would you agree?
What definition of the concept of 'evidence' would encompass more than one subject area?
