Correctness, Logik: is a property of systems or calculi, not of conclusions. A system is correct when all the statements provable in it are true. The system is complete when all valid statements in it are also provable. Completeness and correctness are complementary; they are complementing each other to adequacy. (R. Stuhlmann-Laeisz, Philosophische Logik, Paderborn, 2002). B. Correctness, accuracy, philosophy contrary to the concept of truth, the concept of accuracy refers to an implicitly or explicitly presupposed rule system, which is fulfilled or not fulfilled. While truth is something that is attributed or denied to sentences, accuracy is rather applied to actions - also verbal acting - as well as to illustrations. Unlike truth, accuracy allows gradations. See also truth, truth conditions, indeterminacy, systems, theory, fulfillment, satisfiability.

Author Item Summary Meta data
I 430
Correct/True/Truth/Correctness/Reference/Tugendhat: a speech event is only called a right (correct), when another one is called right - then it has the sense of "true" - that constitutes the reference to objects.
I 441
Correctness/Language/Tugendhat: E.g. signal language of animals or humans, rules causal or conventional, then the use is considered "right" - then classification expressions = quasi-predicates (only in presence of the object).
I 442
Regardless of situation: when the perceptual situation is specified by spatio-temporal localization and is thus objectified.
I 444
If the observer speaks a situation-independent language, he can respond to a situation-dependent language (e.g. of measuring instruments) with the attribution of truth/falsehood.
I 445
Truth: if the speaker only has quasi-predicates, he would have to be able to distinguish between regulatory compliance and situation conformity - then correcting errors about verification rules - I 446 but by definition not if only quasi-predicate available - Solution: singular term, then constancy of an identifiable - I 519 "right"/Tugendhat: Basic Concept
I 448
Truth/Correctness/Tugendhat: the false use of a term (lie) presupposes that it is used in a rule-compliant way (!) - therefore it is necessary to separate correctness and truth - it must be possible to refer to other situations with singular terms and quantifiers
