Single Idea 10781

[catalogued under 5. Theory of Logic / A. Overview of Logic / 4. Pure Logic]

Full Idea

I offer these three claims as a partial analysis of 'pure logic': ontological innocence (no new entities are introduced), universal applicability (to any realm of discourse), and cognitive primacy (no extra-logical ideas are presupposed).

Gist of Idea

A 'pure logic' must be ontologically innocent, universal, and without presuppositions
