Single Idea 15379

[catalogued under 4. Formal Logic / E. Nonclassical Logics / 10. Justification Logics]

Full Idea

In justification logics, the logics of knowledge are extended by making reasons explicit. A logic of proof terms was created, with a semantics. In this, mathematical truths are known for explicit reasons, and these provide a measure of complexity.

Gist of Idea
