The presuming and conjecturing take place in what Popper (1959) called the "context of discovery," where ideas, theories, and hypotheses are developed from any source. The empirical evaluation of these ideas, however, takes place in Popper's "context of justification"; when the question is a taxometric one, the context of justification involves taxometric analyses. We have presumed a taxon and some indicators. , everyone gets a score from 1 to 7 on sadness, anhedonia, and suicidality), much as one does with the Beck Depression Inventory and similar self-report scales.

Perhaps it is time to move beyond simple description to start making explicit inferences, build and test theoretical connections, and advance our understanding of psychiatric "open" concepts until we achieve the closure. , whether diagnosis x refers to a natural category or not). WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE: TAXOMETRICS This discussion clearly suggests that a wide array of potentially damning criticisms have been leveled at the DSM. Unlike some critics, however, 26 TAXOMETR/CS we do not believe that the DSM should be disposed of (nor do we think it is reasonable to believe that the DSM will be readily replaced).

This behavior of taxon markers is captured by a reduced General Covariance Mixture Theorem (GCMT; for the derivation of the theorem AN ANALYTIC PRIMER 33 see Meehl & Yonce, 1996, Appendix A), which provides the mathematical basis of MAXCOV. To understand this idea better, consider the following. Suppose that a certain dimension (a spectrum, a trait) is truly continuous, and we have two ways to measure it. These measures should correlate about the same, whether the correlation is calculated at the low, middle, or high end of the spectrum.
