##### Introduction
Naive set theory considers elementary properties of the union and intersection operators Venn diagrams, the DeMorgan laws, elementary counting techniques such as the inclusion-exclusion principle, partially ordered sets, and so on. This is perhaps as much of set theory as the typical mathematician uses. Indeed, one may "construct" the natural numbers, real numbers, and so on in this framework. However, situations such as Russell's paradox show that some care must be taken to define what, precisely, is a set. However, results in mathematical logic imply it is impossible to determine whether or not these axioms are consistent using only proofs expressed in this language. Assuming they are indeed consistent, there are also statements whose truth or falsity cannot be determined from them. These statements (or their negations!) can be taken as axioms for set theory as well. For example, Cohen's technique of forcing showed that the Axiom of Choice is independent of the other axioms of ZF. (That axiom states that for every collection of nonempty sets, there is a set containing one element from each set in the collection.) This axiom is equivalent to a number of other statements (e.g. Zorn's Lemma) whose assumption allows the proof of surprising even paradoxical results such as the Banach-Tarski sphere decomposition. Thus, some authors are careful to distinguish results which depend on this or other non-ZF axioms; most assume it (that is, they work in ZFC Set Theory).

Thus, at least officially, Field is allied with anti-realism in truth value. But, as we shall see, Field does develop a close surrogate for mathematics, which does have objective, non-vacuous truth conditions for its assertions. There are two parts of the fictionalist programme. The first is to develop a nominalistic version of each worthwhile science. The second is the conservativeness result. The fictionalist should show that adding mathematics (and bridge principles" connecting mathematical and physical terms) does not yield any "new" nominalistic theorems. Then it would follow that even though mathematics is useful and, in fact, practically necessary, it is theoretically dispensable.

##### Kinematic determinacy
Jump to: navigation search Kinematic determinacy is a term used in structural mechanics to describe a structure where material compatibility conditions alone can be used to calculate deflections. A kinematically determinate structure can be defined as a structure where, if it is possible to find nodal displacements compatible with member extensions, those nodal displacements are unique. The structure has no possible mechanisms, i.e. nodal displacements, compatible with zero member extensions, at least to a first-order approximation. Mathematically, the mass matrix of the structure must have full rank. Kinematic determinacy can be loosely used to classify an arrangement of structural members as a structure (stable) instead of a mechanism (unstable). The principles of kinematic determinacy are used to design precision devices such as mirror mounts for optics, and precision linear motion bearings

11. Politics Or Rule Of Law: Deconstruction And Legitimacy In International Law
The requirement for Determinacy, unlike that for validity, those between its general principles which embody different potentially conflicting values.
http://www.ejil.org/journal/Vol4/No1/art1-03.html
##### IV. Determinacy and Coherence
Validity, although necessary, is not the only requirement which the rules of international law have to fulfil from the point of view of their aptitude for the rule of law. Valid rules may be, for example, quite inadequate to serve as a basis for the rule of law because they can be too general and indeterminate, thereby allowing different and contradictory interpretations and, hence political arbitrariness. The requirement for determinacy, unlike that for validity, seems to be more a matter of degree. All rules of law are by definition to some extent general. So their determinacy - at least in theory - can never be absolute. Therefore this is another `intrinsic' contradiction. The rule of law implies on the one hand the ordering of society by rules which are generally applicable and treating like cases alike and not by individual prescriptions which can be discriminatory and inequitable. On the other hand the more general the rule, the less clear and determinate it becomes, giving rise to different and even contradictory interpretations and the possibility of arbitrariness. It could be argued that the generality of rules is a manifestation of their normativity while their determinacy is a function of their concreteness. In this case there seems to be no general theoretical solution capable of reconciling the contradiction. In practice, however, the fact that determinacy is a matter of degree also means that solutions can be sought which could strive for some optimal degree of determinacy.

12. Description Of Current Teaching And Research Interests
Particularism also raises interesting questions about role of judgment in a social and political context and the relative Determinacy of the principles
http://home.southernct.edu/~gillilandr1/jobs/TeachingandResearchInterests.htm
 Description of Current Teaching and Research Interests nonarbitrary manner? Traditionally, judgment is defined in contrast to the conceptual character of principles. But if judgment is an intuitive sense or ability, nondiscursive in nature, it lies beyond the scope of language and cannot be articulated. Intuitionism in its various forms appears to unduly constrain philosophical inquiry; and like KantÂs concept of the thing-in-itself, it generates a paradox by referring to something that is purportedly beyond the limits of thought. To avoid these problems, it is necessary to reexamine the nature of the intuition and its relationship to concepts. I argue that intuition is not nondiscursive and does not stand opposed to concepts, though it remains consistent with the possibility of novel judgments. If concepts always have some degree of indeterminacy, there is something irreducibly intuitive about our understanding of them. Similarly, intuition can be articulated to a far greater extent than we might expect: Experience, past decisions and training, and tacit inferences lie in the background of ÂinstinctiveÂ judgments. Despite the fact that inquiry often runs aground, I argue that no aspect of judgment is ineffable in principle. However, the indeterminacy of principles entails that there is always more to be said about judgment and the principles that guide it, and preserves the possibility of novel ideas and experiences that are not anticipated by these principles.

##### Youth Justice Principles
The information in this article draws heavily on information kindly provided by Dr Gabrielle Maxwell from a paper entitled "Alternatives to Prosecution for Young Offenders in New Zealand", presented in Hong Kong, February 2002 In 1989, New Zealand adopted new legislation (The Children, Young Persons and Their Families Act 1989) which established new objects and principles for Youth Justice and set up an innovative system for responding to the young people who offend. The new system emphasises diversion from courts and custody, and, while holding young persons accountable, facilitates the construction of responses that aim to provide for the rehabilitation and reintegration of young people, support for their families, and that take into account the needs of victims. Since then, this system has been hailed as an example of restorative approach to offending by young people, both because of its objects and principles and because of its use of family group conferences for determining the outcomes of the more serious offending by young people. When a young person offends the Police can respond by, (in reverse order of severity):

##### Working the "In-Between": Kim Stanley Robinson's Utopian Fiction
Abstract. This essay treats four works by Kim Stanley Robinson: three Mars narratives from the eighties Icehenge (1984), "Exploring Fossil Canyon" (1982) and "Green Mars" (1985)and Pacific Edge (1990), the ecotopian "conclusion" of his Orange county trilogy. In these science fictions Robinson writes utopia not so much as an alternative social structure but as an alternative historical process that emerges from the intersecting histories of subjects. Like many contemporary feminists, Robinson portrays subjectivity as a largely opaque, never-finished process that is constituted as much through a need to recognize the subjectivity and difference of others as through a need for others to recognize one's own (constantly changing) subjectivity. The author argues that Robinson inscribes a feminist vision of subjectivity as intersubjectivity in his characterizations, imagery, plots, and narrative strategies in general, and that this vision of the alterity of the self and the subjectivity of the other is the enabling condition for his privileged but alienated protagonists to act and to link their individual histories to utopia as alternative historical process.

##### Prequential probability: principles and properties
A. Philip Dawid and Vladimir G. Vovk Source: Bernoulli Volume 5, Number 1 (1999), 125-162.
##### Abstract
Forecaster has to predict, sequentially, a string of uncertain quantities , whose values are determined and revealed, one by one, by Nature. Various criteria may be proposed to assess Forecaster's empirical performance. The weak prequential principle requires that such a criterion should depend on Forecaster's behaviour or strategy only through the actual forecasts issued. A wide variety of appealing criteria are shown to respect this principle. We further show that many such criteria also obey the strong prequential principle , which requires that, when both Nature and Forecaster make their choices in accordance with a common joint distribution for , certain stochastic properties, underlying and justifying the criterion and inferences based on it, hold regardless of the detailed specification of . In order to understand further this compliant behaviour, we introduce the prequential framework , a game-theoretic basis for probability theory in which it is impossible to violate the prequential principles, and we describe its connections with classical probability theory. In this framework, in order to show that some criterion for assessing Forecaster's empirical performance is valid, we have to exhibit a winning strategy for a third player, Statistician, in a certain perfect-information game. We demonstrate that many performance criteria can be formulated and are valid in the framework and, therefore, satisfy both prequential principles.

What makes me more suspicious about this indifference principle is how Jaynes actually goes on to use it. He says that using it requires the background information about the different propositions to actually be identical, but his very first use of it violates this condition! However, it looks to me like this is a mis-application of the principle, as he has stated it. The background information is explicitly not Math Links Roundup Putnam on Indispensability

##### Playing with language
The main research topic of the Compositionality and Truth Project concerns different constraints on the semantic interpretation of natural and formal language sentences and discourse. We explore several ideas, which go back to Jaakko Hintikka , according to which a piece of discourse is interpreted via a game of falsification and verification, in which two players look for entities out there in the world which have to stand in certain relations for one of the players (the verifier or the falsifier) to win the game. The relation with truth is straightforward: it amounts to the existence of a winning strategy for the verifier in the associated game. As a result, a cluster of concepts from traditional philosophy and logic are placed in a new light. Connectives in logic receive a game-theoretical content. Logical axioms become equivalent to game-theoretical principles (e.g. determinacy of games). The strategic paradigm in the theory of language becomes prominent in contradistinction to the older rule-based paradigm. One can talk about the information known or remembered by the players when moving from one sub-game to another, or even from an earlier to a later move. The restrictions put on the information of the players may lead to very powerful logics.

Subject: Continuum Hypothesis - Summary
Date: Wed, 13 Mar 91 21:29:47 GMT
Thanks to all the people who responded to my enquiry about the status of the Continuum Hypothesis. This is a really fascinating subject, which I could waste far too much time on. The following is a summary of some aspects of the feeling I got for the problems. This will be old-hat to set theorists, and no doubt there are a couple of embarrassing misunderstandings, but it might be of some interest to non-professionals. A basic reference is Gödel's "What is Cantor's Continuum Problem?", from 1947 with a 1963 supplement, reprinted in Benacerraf and Putnam's collection Philosophy of Mathematics . This outlines Gödel's generally anti-CH views, giving some "implausible" consequences of CH. "I believe that adding up all that has been said one has good reason to suspect that the role of the continuum problem in set theory will be to lead to the discovery of new axioms which will make it possible to disprove Cantor's conjecture." At one stage he believed he had a proof that C = aleph_2 from some new axioms, but this turned out to be fallacious. (See Ellentuck, "Gödel's Square Axioms for the Continuum", Mathematische Annalen 1975.)

I volunteered to assist her with an essay assignment and I thought to retrieve some information from the net. But, alas, I can find no information on the net. I would only like to have you point me in the right direction, if you would. The problem: (or question as it may be) "The continuum theory, what is it and has it been resolved?"

Jonathan Berg (Haifa)
email: jonathan@research.haifa.ac.il. Paul Grice observes, in his "Further Notes on Logic and Conversation," that the theory of conversational implicature seems to lead to a sort of paradox. On the one hand, working out what is conversationally implicated seems to require knowing what is said. But on the other hand, what is said can be notoriously elusiveespecially in just those cases that the theory of conversational implicature was supposed to illuminate. I shall argue that the solution to the paradox lies in recognizing that in an important sense we typically do not know what we say. Implicature Conventions Wayne A.

##### Legitimacy and the Governance of the Global Political Economy
while there is a literature on the formal sources of international lawtreaties, custom, etc.this is not the same as an examination into the reasons why rules do, or do not obligate. The latter question is largely shunned...Many modern social scientists, moreover, quite simply do not even see any international system, let alone an international pattern of deference to systemic norms worth bothering about. Who would bother to inquire as to why a system of rules is obeyed when there is little evidence either of a system or of obedience? consider challenging sovereignty and borders to any significant degree as one would expect if they were operating out of self-interest. That exceptions are labelled "rogue states" and regarded as reprehensible deviants indicates the normative significance of sovereignty's legitimacy. Hurd demonstrates convincingly the relevance of legitimacy to sovereignty, but, as he notes, the "process by which a particular norm, rule or norm comes to be seen as legitimate" and "the role of power (material and ideological) in making an institution legitimate" are questions that remain to be further researched. Two other approaches to understanding legitimacy in international politics are worth considering before trying to move our understanding of the issues raised by these questions into new territory. These two existing approaches, which I will address in turn, are Franck's and the Gramscian approach.

Luzin separation principles Two theorems in descriptive set theory , proved by N.N. Luzin in (see ). Two sets and without common points, lying in a Euclidean space, are called -separable or Borel separable if there are two Borel sets and without common points containing and , respectively. The first Luzin separation principle states that two disjoint analytic sets (cf. -set Analytic set ) are always -separable. Since there are two disjoint co-analytic sets (cf. -set ) that are -inseparable, the following definition makes sense: Two sets and without common points are separable by means of co-analytic sets if there are two disjoint sets and containing and , respectively, each of which is a co-analytic set. Luzin's second separation principle asserts that if from two analytic sets one removes their common part, then the remaining parts are always separable by means of co-analytic sets.

Peter van Inwagen
Why Vagueness Is a Mystery This paper considers two "mysteries" having to do with vagueness. The first pertains to existence. An argument is presented for the following conclusion: there are possible cases in which ‛There exists something that is FÂ is of indeterminate truth-value and with respect to which it is not assertable that there are borderline-cases of "being F." It is contended that we have no conception of vagueness that makes this result intelligible. The second mystery has to do with "ordinary" vague predicates, such as ‛tallÂ. An argument is presented for the conclusion that although there are people who are "tall to degree 1"Âdefinitely tall, tall without qualificationÂ, no greatest lower bound can be assigned to the set of numbers n such that a man who is n centimeters tall is tall to degree 1. But, since this set is bounded from below, this result seems to contradict a well-known property of the real numbers.

 CHAPTER VIII POSITIVISM, POST-POSITIVISM AND POSTMODERNISM EVALDAS NEKRASAS Fierce attacks on modernism by postmodernists reawakened an interest in positivist modernism both inside and outside academic circles. This interest is still alive in spite of the fact that some philosophers claim that today we are living already in a post-post-modern era. A fundamental question looms large: are postmodernists right when they claim that postmodern thinking is radically different from the modern one, of which positive (or positivist) thinking is a paradigmatic case? When examining this issue it is advisable to start from the brief analysis of the causes which led to disintegration of the latest form of positivism which, a bit paradoxically, was likely closest to the philosophy of the originator of the movement, namely that of David Hume. By this latest form I mean, of course, logical positivism. (Not everyone would agree that precisely Hume and not Auguste Comte was the originator of positivism but I do not intend to discuss this issue here.) Logical positivism as a distinct and integrated type of philosophy actually ceased to exist more or less three decades ago. According to the common wisdom it started to fell apart under criticism of W.V. Quine and Karl Popper. Their attacks on the fundamental principles of positivism were followed by later ones coming from different quarters and assailing positivism on different lines. Allegedly the most important, deadly blow was received by positivism in the early sixties, namely the publication of Thomas KuhnÂs

 Determinacy Restored "Francis is a charming fellow, but you must be careful with Ysidro!" (Alfred Marshall, as attributed in J. M. Keynes, Essays in Biography 1933: p.236). "What I want to say is that I do not think you at all appreciate the deadly and daring injury that A does to B, if he reads rapidly a piece of hard argument on which B has spent an immense deal of work; and then believing that argument to be wrong, writes an article full of the most polite phrases, in which a caricature of that argument is held up to the most refined, but deadly, scorn. I fancy that you think the polite phrases diminish the mischief...Their effect is that of a white flag under which the ship approaches close to another and rams and torpedoes it...There! I feel so much better." (Alfred Marshall, "Letter to F.Y. Edgeworth", as quoted in J. Creedy, 1986: p.96-7). Contents The Bargaining Solution The Utilitarian Solution The Walrasian Solution The Marshallian Solution ... Solutions Compared The Bargaining Solution It is important to note that Edgeworth's claims about "indeterminacy" of exchange depend very much on his vision of exchange. Edgeworth adhered strictly to the idea that the exchange process that went on in reality was neatly captured by his "recontracting" logic. But it is not the only logic. Could Jevons be right? Could barter exchange be determinate if we consider other ways by which the exchange process is conducted?

The Geographer
by Jan Vermeer, an august virtuoso of light,
symbolizes ALEMBIC TRUTH Symbolically speaking, ALEMBIC TRUTH is the play of stippling broad daylight on a mundane, palpable object of the visible world which, once the senses perceive its perceptual form and the faculty of reason logically distils its fundamental attribute into a universal ideal, furnishes humans with an explicit insight into a shared feature of concrete Being. By acquiring aesthetic understanding in this fashion, humans connect their sublime cognitions to objective reality and thereby pass from the darkness to the stippled light. In view of the fact that universal aesthetic cognitions stem from the logical distillation of perceived objects of the visible world, it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that art mirrors objectivity.

The preceding formal definition of ALEMBIC TRUTH is supported by the following logical canons:
• If the determinate propositions of an argument have a logical fidelity to the objective facts of determinate Being and an inner consistency, then they entail the conclusion; viz., the conclusion must be accepted as being true by one and all.

##### EPISTEMICISM AND THE COMBINED SPECTRUM
Torin Alter and Stuart Rachels Ratio XVII, September 2004, 241-255] Abstract Derek Parfit's combined-spectrum argument seems to conflict with epistemicism, a viable theory of vagueness. While Parfit argues for the indeterminacy of personhood, epistemicism denies indeterminacy. But, we argue, the linguistically based determinacy that epistemicism supports lacks the sort of normative or ontological significance that concerns Parfit. Thus, we reformulate his argument to make it consistent with epistemicism. We also dispute Roy Sorensen's suggestion that Parfit's argument relies on an assumption that fuels resistance to epistemicism, namely, that 'the magnitude of a modification must be proportional to its effect.' Epistemicism is the view that vague concepts have sharp borderlines, but we cannot know where these borderlines lie. On this view, there is an exact number of grains of sand that make the smallest heap, but we cannot know what that number is.
