logical truth / Field: if it obeys a strong modal logic, one is not obliged to give evidence concerning logical knowability - logical truth is inseparable from logical knowability! - We considered the case when statements such as M (NBG) are logically true (only for Field, KripkeVs) then they can not be known logically.
