Xoanon93 added it May 03, Then L 1 is Kripke incomplete. Carlson models are easier to visualize and to work with than usual polymodal Kripke models; there are, however, Kripke complete polymodal logics which are Carlson incomplete. There thus remains a crucial, if diminished, role for a priori knowledge to play. Satisfaction is defined as:. Seems to be pitched at the undergraduate. That is, ” ‘Snow is white’ is true” is well-defined, as is ” ‘ “Snow is white” is true’ is true,” and so forth, but neither “This sentence is true” nor “This sentence is not true” receive truth-conditions; they are, in Kripke’s terms, “ungrounded.

One intriguing burgexs of his proposal is that, while it provides a descriptivist alternative to the direct reference theory — an approach that, although not endorsed by Kripke, provides the most natural implementation of his overall approach — it also incorporates an important Kripkean element: Paperbackpages.
