Friedrich Seibold
Once More – What is Truth?


The present essay is a truth theory based upon the ‘principle of sufficient reason’. It is a critique of modern logic which does not fulfil this principle. The text differentiates between various meanings of ‘true’ and discusses the presuppositions and procedure necessary to establish a textually stringent logical truth. Furthermore it extends today’s concept of logic by defining a new fundamental principle. This new principle does not only include the classic logical principles of identity, contradiction and excluded third but also provides the essential key to the resolution of logical paradoxes. By their resolution it demonstrates them to be mere seeming paradoxes.
