Existential Generalization | Berka I 469 Generalization/generalization/Tarski: ((s) here: not existential generalization?) lets free variables disappear. --- Berka I 480 Generalization/generalization/fulfillment/"at most distinguishing at i-th position"/Tarski: ((s) here not existential generalization) - Let x be a propositional function, assuming it is already known, which sequences fulfill the function x - by considering the content of the considered operation, we will only claim of the sequence f that it satisfies the LKx function if the sequence itself satisfies the x function and even then not stops to satisfy it if the k-th term varies in any way - e.g. the function L2l1,2 is only satisfied by such a sequence, which verifies the formula f1 | Tarsk I A.
