Relevance Logic/Brendel: it is not explicitly about an alternative handling of contradictions. Problem: how the different formal semantics are to be interpreted philosophically for the relevance logic.
VsAnderson/VsBelnap: Although its system R corresponds to certain association theoretical structures, it is controversial how these structures are to be interpreted as truth values.
Solution/Dunn/Brendel: tetravalent semantics with additional "true-and-false" and "neither-true-nor-false". However, epistemically and not to be understood ontologically. It should explain that someone can have conflicting or incomplete information.
DunnVsDialethism/Brendel: Dunn does not claim the existence of "true contradictions". (Dunn, 1986, 192f).
