Truth III 29
Truth / truth preservation / Field: because all inferences that are thus obtained are correct every time, you should assume that you can say the theory of real numbers is true - solution: instead of having to assume the truth of the theory of real numbers we can accept the preservation of truth (truth transfer): this is explained without truth by acceptance of conservatism - conservatism: here we also need to take only the limited version of conservatism, which follows from the consistency of set theory alone.
