Changing Concepts in Forensics.
This paper discusses five theoretical concepts in general and two theoretical models in particular that are involved in forensics. The five concepts are: (1) causation, an inquiry into the reasons for ongoing processes or problems; (2) inherency, the division of a universe into its necessary features and its accidental features; (3) presumption, a concept which functions against the proposition; (4) burden of proof, the converse or presumption; and (5) prima facie case, a case whose form consists of a sequential examination of the "stock issues." The theoretical models discussed are the legislative model and the truth-testing model. (TS)
