Some time ago, longer than I have been able to find in the Taxacom
archives, there was a posting on whether questions should be considered
equally with hypotheses within the framework of the hypothetico-deductive
method.  I believe this was in response to something written in one of
Mayr's more recent books.  Might anyone remember the date?  Citation?  I
would like to look at the original...  Thanks in advance.
