Metaphysical Possibility I 86
Logically possible/possibility/diamond/KripkeVsField: "it is possible that" is not a logical truth - FieldVsKripke: that is only due to Kripke's model-theoretical definition. - It should not be seen as "mathematically" or "metaphysically possible".

I 87
E.g. Carnap: "He is a bachelor and married": is logically wrong - (> meaning postulates) - FieldVsCarnap: Meaning relations between predicates should not belong to logic. - Then the sentence is logically consistent. Consistency operator/Field: MEx (x is red & x is round) - should not only be true, but logically true. - ((s) Even without meaning postulates - (meaning postulate/(s): this is about the scope of logic.)
