Single Idea 10597

[catalogued under 5. Theory of Logic / K. Features of Logics / 4. Completeness]

Full Idea

There is an annoying double-use of 'complete': a logic may be semantically complete, but there may be an incomplete theory expressed in it.

Gist of Idea

'Complete' applies both to whole logics, and to theories within them
