Philosophy Dictionary of Arguments  
 
Axiom: principle or rule for linking elements of a theory that is not proven within the theory. It is assumed that axioms are true and evident. Adding or eliminating axioms turns a system into another system. Accordingly, more or less statements can be constructed or derived in the new system. See also axiom systems, systems, strength of theories, proofs, provability. _____________ Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.
