[catalogued under 5. Theory of Logic / K. Features of Logics / 10. Monotonicity]

Full Idea

Basic Monotony: something stays proved if further premises are added. Cautious Monotony: the addition of something which has been proved makes no difference. Rational Monotony: it stays proved as long as the addition's negation hasn't been proved.

Gist of Idea

Cautious Monotony ignores proved additions; Rational Monotony fails if the addition's negation is proved
