Scientific Proof in Criminal Procedure in the Light of Informational Epistemology

The paper discusses a problem created by underestimating scientific proofs within criminal procedure. For the purpose, the concept of so-called expected information content is used. The Daubert Standard is not an adequate criterion for a separation of scientific and pseudoscientific methods. Measurement of evidence value requires taking into consideration informational content and probability. Only taking into account both measures – in certain proportion – allows to avoid paradoxes generated by classical diagnostic indicators, naive Bayesianism and falsificationism.
