The paper discusses the Aristotelian objection according to which a statement describing some contingent future event is either without truth-value, and thus antecedently contingent but not (broadly) subsequently necessary at present, or it has a truth-value, but then it is not merely (broadly) subsequently necessary but also antecedently necessary.
If P([t.sub.p], [i.sub.p], [f.sub.p]) is a neutrosophic proposition, with [t.sub.p], [i.sub.p], [f.sub.p] subsets of [0, 1], then the neutrosophic truth-value of the neutrosophic possibility operator is:
In other words, the truth-value of a mathematical sentence is determined by the truth-values of its concrete consequences, and the truth-values of the concrete consequences are determined by the concrete world.
The negative argument is, simply put, that if the contrastive account of singular causal claims were correct, it would not be relevant to the truth-value of causal claims such as "A rather than A* caused B" what would have happened instead of A, if A had not occurred; but it does matter what would have happened instead of the A; in particular, causal claims of that form imply that A* would have occurred, had A not occurred; so, the contrastive account fails.
y(i), y(i -1), y(i - 2) are points that meet Formulas (2) and (3) in the sampling sequence [y(1),..., y(i),..., y(n)] and are considered as truth-value points.
"truth-value" may serve as an independent stimulus for behavior (see Grant, 1972)--that is, how and when does "truth" become associated with a particular behavior (DePaulo et al., 2003; Vrij, 2000).
To her, the sufficiency of the surrounding conditions may not be enough to guarantee the truth-value of a proposition.
Therefore, he argues, the meaning and truth-value of a sentence results from rule-governed combinations of its constituents' meanings and relations to the circumstances.
Indeed, the idea that critique may undo ideological mystification assumes that ideology aspires to truth-value and rationalism, but Zizek's 1989 argument that people enjoy ideological consistency for its own sake is supported by abundant evidence that ideology is impervious to critique even as it absorbs critique's techniques.
Agirregoiloa's work thus relentlessly questions the truth-value of cultural traditions, an approach everywhere on view in the recent exhibition of his drawings, "Culture is what is done to us." The show's title, a quote from the Minimalist artist Carl Andre, was programmatic: What mutilations, Agirregoikoa seemed to keep asking, has tradition inflicted on us?
