Single Idea 19129

[catalogued under 3. Truth / G. Axiomatic Truth / 2. FS Truth Axioms]

Full Idea

It is a virtue of the Friedman-Sheard axiomatisation that it is thoroughly classical in its logic. Its drawback is that it is ω-inconsistent. That is, it proves &exists;xφ(x), but proves also φ(0), φ(1), φ(2),

Gist of Idea

The FS axioms use classical logical, but are not fully consistent

A Reaction

It seems the theory is complete (and presumably sound), yet not fully consistent. FS also proves the finite levels of Tarski's hierarchy, but not the transfinite levels.
