So take the token proposition:
“all of them are not-y,” which is a Proposition in A.
Thus, we can view the proposition
It is what makes that proposition true!
One way to think of a proposition is as the meaning of a sentence.
If one accepts a proposition, then one can also act upon the proposition.
First, one propounds a proposition (pratijñā), that is, one sets forth a proposition to be proved.
That is, the more information carried by a proposition, the less likely it is that the proposition is true.
One should distinguish knowing a self-evident proposition from knowing that that proposition is self-evident.
If Ed does run, so that the proposition is true, it is just a basic, brute fact that the proposition is true.
So if the past is now-necessary and the future is not, a proposition about the past cannot entail a proposition about the future.
The second exception is XMM, where the major is an absolute proposition and the conclusion, like the minor, is an M-proposition proposition (weaker than the major).
If a proposition p occurs within another proposition, as the argument of a function such as x is false, then the resulting proposition is of a higher order than p.
which can be read as “if something is true of a false proposition then if it true of a true proposition, it is true of any proposition” (C00 is a true proposition).
Scholastic authors often ascribed probability at the same time to a proposition and its negation or to a proposition and a counter-proposition which was logically incompatible with it.
Logical properties of a proposition are — according to a classical view — of a formal character, i.e., they are primarily properties of the form of a proposition rather than of the proposition itself.
Lewis points out that in Russell and Whitehead’s Principia Mathematica we find two “startling theorems: (1) a false proposition implies any proposition, and (2) a true proposition is implied by any proposition” (1912: 522).
(The inference from (1) to (2) here requires two additional, and I hope obvious, assumptions: (1a) Knowing a proposition requires having the concepts necessary for thinking the proposition, and (1b) The concept of a BIV is one by which the known proposition is grasped.)
In fact: (1) although the mental proposition exists in the mind as in a subject, the real proposition is present in the mind only qua object of the act of understanding; (2) the real proposition provides the objective content which the other kinds of proposition aim to express; and (3) the mental proposition is the semantic link between the spoken and written propositions on the one hand, and the real proposition they refer to on the other.
One will gather what I mean by proposition as soon as I remark that I do not call a proposition in itself or an objective proposition that which the grammarians call a proposition, namely, the linguistic expression, but rather simply the meaning of this expression, which must be exactly one of the two, true or false; and that accordingly I attribute existence to the grasping of a proposition, to thought propositions as well as to the judgments made in the mind of a thinking being (existence, namely, in the mind of the one who thinks this proposition and who makes the judgment); but the mere proposition in itself (or the objective proposition) I count among the kinds of things that do not have any existence whatsoever, and never can attain existence.
