Independence, philosophy: the concept of independence is relevant in the context of the countability of events. It is thus a question of whether an event is a condition, a sequence or a side effect of an event, or whether it is to be counted as a separate event. See also epiphenomenalism, cause, effect, dependency, relations, overlap, autonomy, overlap.

Independence / Logic / Cresswell: misunderstanding: independence of an axiom does not mean that you can discard it at will - e.g. an independence proof within the axiomatic propositional calculus, for example, the independence of (p v q)> (q v p). - Such proof indicates that one can give a semantic definition of an operator that meets all other axioms of disjunction, but is not commutative - but it does not show that disjunction itself is not commutative, and it also does not show that (p v q)> (q v p) is not a logical truth about classic disjunction.
