Negation II 308
Vagueness / indeterminacy / logic / "reject" / Field: Def Rejecting: is not accepting the negation - moderate non-classical logic / Field: should be defined without "Reject": it does not accept any instances of the Sentence of the Excluded Middle, but also does not accept the negation of any instance - reject: this sense should be less than the meaning of "accepting the negation" - but it must in turn be stronger than "not accept" - Def "p reject": "accept that it is not the case that determined p". - "low" acceptance should be more than "not high" - if the threshold > acceptance, then rejecting is stronger than non-accepting - assumed, belief degrees in a sentence and its negation add up to less than 1, then: reject: weaker than accept the negation.
