[catalogued under 5. Theory of Logic / K. Features of Logics / 3. Soundness]

Full Idea

Soundness seems to be a notion essentially involving truth. At least I do not know how to fully express the soundness of Peano arithmetic without invoking a truth predicate.

Gist of Idea

Soundness must involve truth; the soundness of PA certainly needs it

A Reaction

I suppose you could use some alternative locution such as 'assertible' or 'cuddly'. Intuitionists seem a bit vague about the truth end of things.
