Set Theory and Logic


Refutation of Fodor’s Causality Principle and Extension to the Class Fodor Principle

Authors: Colin James III

We evaluate Fodor’s principle in two versions we name weaker and stronger. Neither is tautologous. By extension, the class Fodor principle is not tautologous. Because of this, using Kelly-Morse set theory as a basis for denial is rendered moot. However, to rely on KM set theory to deny Fodor principles as a class principle is obviated by the refutation above. Therefore Fodor’s causality principles and extension are non tautologous fragments of the universal logic VŁ4.
