[catalogued under 3. Truth / G. Axiomatic Truth / 3. KF Truth Axioms]

Full Idea

KF is useful for explicating Peano arithmetic, but it certainly does not come to close to being a theory that contains its own truth predicate.

Gist of Idea

The KF theory is useful, but it is not a theory containing its own truth predicate

A Reaction

Since it is a type-free theory, its main philosophical aspiration was to contain its own truth predicate, so that is bad news (for philosophers).
