Dialetheismus, semantische Geschlossenheit und Konditionale

By Marius Thomann


One argument against the characterisation of a semantically closed language in the framework of dialetheism aims at establishing the triviality of such a language by means of a so-called strengthened liar sentence. In this paper, I discuss a critique that adopts this strategy. A set of constraints is developped that the conditional has to meet if the language is to (i) meet the basic semantic assumptions of dialetheism, (ii) be non-trivial, and (iii) be semantically closed. The main result is that Graham Priest's LP, the paradigm dialetheic logic, is not threatened by the critique discussed.
