Sprache/Bigelow/Pargetter: die Sätze der Sprache können in zwei Teile aufgeteilt werden:
a) Theoreme (logisch notwendig).
b) Nichttheoreme. (Diese können auch falsch sein).
Nichttheoreme: sogar sie können notwendig wahr sein. Bsp dass Elektronen negative Ladung haben.
metaphysisch notwendig/Bigelow/Pargetter: solche Sätze können wir „metaphysisch notwendig“ nennen. Weil seine Wahrheit nicht von Theoremen garantiert ist. (Oder nicht aus der Logik allein folgt).
