Frank Plumpton Ramsey on Laws - Dictionary of Arguments

Lewis V 122
Law / laws of nature / Ramsey: (fragment): "... those consequences of sentences which we took as axioms if we knew everything and would bring them into the simplest possible deductive system.
Lewis: strange here is the unnecessary mention of knowledge - this suggests that an ideal system would imply all truths - which may not have been Ramsey’s intention, because he has not made such a stupid mistake: that would mean all regularities emerge as laws.
Regularity/Lewis: is not a law by itself but qua axiom or theorem of a system.
