Berka I 154
Definition Strict Implication/CI. I. Lewis/Berka: (1918): C'pq = NMKpNq - "It is not the case that p is true and q is false" - paradox of material implication: the for it responsible statement "p is true and q is false" is not free of self-contradiction - Implication: if it should have the meaning "q derivable from p", the above statement is obviously a contradiction.
I 155
Paradox of strict implication: 1. An impossible statement implies any statement - 2. A necessary is implied by each statement. - It also follows that all impossibilities and all necessities are strictly equivalent. - Solution: enhanced propositional calculus.
