Non-Existence | I 54 Non-existence / truth / quantification / Field: if the quantified object does not exist, every statement with a existential quantifier is wrong - and every statement with a universal quantifier is trivially true. - ((s)talking of mathematical entities we do not have a problem with empty names). - ((s) universal statements are true for the conditional "if there are mathematical entities, then ..") - Mathematics / Field: if you wanted to keep only the true statements thereafter, mathematics would be uninteresting. |
