French, German and Polish (perhaps also some others) articles concern philosophical meaning of the therm "evidence" - mainly cartesian, cantian, rickertian, husserlian. The English article (which seems to be realy bad :)) doesn't relate to the philsophical meaning. So I (as an author of the Polish article - pl:Oczywistość) I'm worried whether newly added interwikis to pl, de and fr are actually appropiate. I think that if they don't, we should use here an unusual way of making interwiki. (talk) 00:27, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

I agree that the english article is a bit dubious, and does not cover the philosphical meaning of evidence. Looking at the French and German articles though, they are very light on, expecially the French one. I have requested a translation of your Polish article Wikipedia:Translation/Evidence. I will have a go at redoing the English article. Pee Tern (talk) 05:14, 14 February 2008 (UTC)
You might also want to have a look at Scientific evidence, which seems to more philosphical than scientific, and perhaps I might have some significant restructuring and merging to do!? Pee Tern (talk) 05:31, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

This is an ironic warning statement to find attached to an article on "Evidence". (talk) 01:03, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Assertion or Truth Claim[edit]

The article begins with a link to the article on Assertion, which links to the particular article on "logical assertion". I believe the evidence article can be improved by linking, instead, to the article on truth claims, or perhaps some other assertion article, chosen carefully from the assertion disambiguation page.
