Saving Truth From Paradox

Hartry Field (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter surveys a number of dialetheic theories, pointing out some difficulties with each. The theories differ over the kind of conditionals they contain. The dialetheic theory that in some ways does best among those now known is based on the semantics of Chapters 16 and 17; however, it is somewhat unsatisfactory in not allowing reasoning by cases. But there is no clear reason to rule out the possibility of better dialetheic theories in the future.

Keywords:   conditionals, reasoning, disjunction elimination, Intersubstitutivity Principle, contraposition
