Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

 
Negation, philosophy, logic: negation of a sentence. In logic, this is done by prefixing the negation symbol. Colloquially expressed by the word "not", which can be at different positions in the sentence. If the negation refers only to one sentence part, this must be made clear by the position, e.g. a predicate can be denied without negating the whole sentence. In logic, therefore, inner and outer negation is distinguished by the use of different symbols.

Double negation/Quine: E.g. sentence of the excluded third/SET/Quine. (1) Every closed sentence is true or false - (2) Every closed sentence or its negation is true. - (3) Every closed sentence is true or not true - multivalent logic: truth value 1, 2, 3: "2" and "3" summarized as "false" - then the negation of 2 and 3 leads to 1 - from 1 to (2 v 3) - problem: for truth functions we have to decide: the negation always has to lead from 1 to 2 or 3 - then the double negation does not work anymore.
