Classicality Lost: K3 and LP after the Fall

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
It is commonly held that the ascription of truth to a sentence is intersubstitutable with that very sentence. However, the simplest subclassical logics available to proponents of this view, namely K3 and LP, are hopelessly weak for many purposes. In this paper, I argue that this is much more of a problem for proponents of LP than for proponents of K3. The strategies for recapturing classicality offered by proponents of LP are far less promising than those available to proponents of K3. This undermines the ability of proponents LP to engage in public reasoning in classical domains.
