Terminology I 215f
Existence burden/Wessel: elementary predicative statements can only be true if their subjects exist - existence burden only useful if the corresponding statement is true -> characteristic "e": If A is true, then A is burdened existentially, means: statement A has "Characteristic e" - Characteristic n: "If A is true, then A is not existentially burdened"- tautologies: Characteristic n (always true) - contradictions: always Characteristic e - statements about the follow-up relationship always have Chararacteristic e because they are elementary predicative statements.
