Set Theory and Logic


The Logical Content of Inequalities

Authors: Ilija Barukčić

Objective. From a theoretical point of view, the demarcation between science and (fantastical) pseudoscience is in necessary for both practical and theoretical reasons. One specific nature of pseudoscience in relation to science and other categories of human reasoning is the resistance to the facts. Methods. Several methods are analyzed which may be of use to prevent that belief is masqueraded genuinely as scientific knowledge. Results. Modus ponens, modus tollens and modus conversus are reanalyzed. Modus sine, logically equivalent to modus ponens is developed. Modus inversus and modus juris are described in detail. Conclusions. In our striving for knowledge, there is still much more scientific work to be done on the demarcation between science and pseudoscience. Keywords: non strict inequality, quantum mechanics, science, pseudoscience
