Implication Paradox HC I 34f
Paradoxies of material implication/Hughes/Cresswell: a true proposition (statement) is implied materially by any other proposition - a false proposition implies materially any proposition - (material, not strict!) - paradoxes of strict implication: a necessary proposition implies strictly any arbitrary proposition, - an impossible is strictly implied by each - solution: (p strimp q) simply means that q-and-not-p is impossible.
