Logical Truth - Logical Truth and Logical Constants

Logical Truth and Logical Constants

Logical constants, including logical connectives and quantifiers, can all be reduced conceptually to logical truth. For instance, two statements or more are logically incompatible just in case their conjunction is logically false. One statement logically implies another when it is logically incompatible with the negation of the other. A statement is logically false just in case its negation is logically true, etc. In this way all logical connectives can be expressed in terms of preserving logical truth.

Famous quotes containing the words logical and/or truth:

    The sensual and spiritual are linked together by a mysterious bond, sensed by our emotions, though hidden from our eyes. To this double nature of the visible and invisible world—to the profound longing for the latter, coupled with the feeling of the sweet necessity for the former, we owe all sound and logical systems of philosophy, truly based on the immutable principles of our nature, just as from the same source arise the most senseless enthusiasms.
    Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt (1767–1835)

    The truth is, that in London it is always a sickly season. Nobody is healthy in London, nobody can be.
    Jane Austen (1775–1817)
