The empty set is denoted by 0, {0} by 1, and {0, 1} by 2. We tabulate the following logical schemes 1 : 1 In addition to these logical schemes there is also the scheme—called in (Lawvere & Rosebrugh 2003) the higher distributive law— HDDL ∀x[α(x) ∨ β(x)] → ∃xα(x) ∨ ∀xβ(x) 36 D.

All that is asked of him is that, if he wishes to discuss it, he must state his methods clearly, and give syntactic rules instead of philosophical arguments. 230), argues that this position is unstable. For, Friedman suggests, in order to formulate “syntactic rules” for a classical language in a manner satisfactory to Carnap, as Carnap clearly intends us to be able to do, we must presume the resources of a classical metalanguage.

Externalism, Anti-Realism, and the KK-Thesis 29 Let us settle on a generic formula for knowledge. Say that Karl knows Φ if and only if: Φ ∧ BΦ ∧ Ci (Φ) ∧ Ce (Φ), where Ci (Φ) gives the “internally available” conditions (if any) and Ce (Φ) gives the external conditions (if any) for knowledge.
