## A-logicA-Logic is a new theory of formal logic based on substitution of synonyms rather than sameness of truth-values. In this book, it is contrasted, step-by-step, with today's mathematical logic. This approach reveals how A-Logic can resolve traditional logic's anomalies, such as the Liar's paradox, Hempel's Paradox of Confirmation, and Carnap's problem of dispositional predicates, while preserving all of standard logic's theorems. |
