Set Theory and Logic


Refutation of Fitch's Paradox of Knowability © Copyright 2018 by Colin James III All Rights Reserved.

Authors: Colin James III

We find the Fitch paradox to be tautologous, that is, not contradictory, and hence a theorem. We state the theorem as "every truth is discernible", and we add, "by the instant modal logic model checker". A subsequent invocation of Gödel incompleteness and with jettison of the knowability rule to generalize and solve the paradox is contradictory, proving nothing.
