Negative facts and constructible falsity

International Journal of Reasoning-based Intelligent Systems (IJRIS), Vol. 1, No. 1/2, 2009

Abstract: We formalise the notion of negative facts due to Russell in terms of the logic of constructible falsity. We generalise Fraassen's theory of facts so that we can deal with a positive fact as a true proposition and a negative fact as a false proposition in a constructive manner. We provide some adequacy results for the revised van Fraassen semantics with respect to several versions of Kripke semantics for constructible falsity.
