Single Idea 16973

[catalogued under 10. Modality / A. Necessity / 6. Logical Necessity]

Full Idea

One view is that logical consequence is to be understood in terms of logical necessity (some proposition holds necessarily, if some group of other propositions holds). Alternatively, logical necessity is a logical consequence of the empty set.

Gist of Idea

Explain logical necessity by logical consequence, or the other way around?

A Reaction

I think my Finean preference is for all necessities to have a 'necessitator', so logical necessity results from logic in some way, perhaps from logical consequence, or from the essences of the connectives and operators.
