Laws of thought

Postby Julie M. Martinez » Wed Mar 02, 2011 9:17 am

I would appreciate it if all of you gave your individual interpretations of the three laws of thought.
Here is my POV

1.Identity
A = A

2.Non-contradiction
A != !A

3.Excluded middle
!(True And False)

These laws hold true only "at the same time and in the same respect". There should be no ambiguity in the meaning of 'A'.

Non-contradiction is about potential but once it is realized, it can't be anything else. Once A is accepted as A, it can't be not A

Excluded middle is about truth value. A proposition can be either true or false but not both(at the same time and in the same respect)
A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.
