Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Screenshot Tabelle Begriffe

Substitution, philosophy: here we are concerned with replacing verbal elements or logical symbols within expressions or logical formulas by other linguistic elements or logical symbols that are able to form a meaningful statement at the same syntactic position. If the truth value (true or false) of the statement is preserved, one speaks of the substitutability of a term by another term in a certain context. See also equality, insertion, meaning, identity, co-reference.
