Resolution of Moore's Paradox as a Theorem

Authors: Colin James III

We evaluate Moore's paradox, as touted by Wittgenstein, with Hintikka's omissive or commissive logical forms as "P and NOT(belief in P)" or "P and belief in NOT-P". The former as antecedent (contradictory) and the latter as consequent (neither contradictory nor tautologous) imply tautology, a theorem.
