I 88
Logical knowledge/Field/(s): knowledge about the fact that something is logically true (e.g. that the axioms are consistent), but not the axioms themselves.
FieldVsKripke: we then introduce a non-Kripkean concept of logical truth, according to which some non-trivial assertions about possibility are part of the logic. - Then the consistency of axioms becomes a logical truth.
Induction/Field: extra-logical means: empirical - because we find no contradiction.
I 94
Logical Knowledge/Frege: Problem: whereby do I know that it is logically possible that the axioms of quantum theory are true: by asserting that I know that there are actually entities asserted by the axioms.
FieldVsFrege: if these entities existed, how could one know then that they are in this relationship and not in another?
I 113
Pure Logical Knowledge/Field: must be knowledge that makes no existence assumptions.
