Bertrand Russell
IV 78
Principle of contradiction / laws of thought / Russell: a sentence is not a law of thought. - Belief in it is an idea, but not the sentence itself, but a fact concerning the outside world - if that what we believe, were not true of the things of the outer world, the ((s) wrongly assumed) fact that we are forced to think so, would no guarantee that the sentence cannot be wrong. This shows that it is not a law of thought.
