[catalogued under 4. Formal Logic / B. Propositional Logic PL / 5. Completeness of PL]

Full Idea

A logical system is complete is all expressions of a specified kind are derivable in it. If we specify tautologous sequent-expressions, then propositional logic is complete, because we can show that all tautologous sequents are derivable.

Gist of Idea

Propositional logic is complete, since all of its tautologous sequents are derivable
