Truth/Falsity as a False Dichotomy

Post by Eodnhoj7 »

The truth/false dichotomy is a false dichotomy given the expression of contexts reflect truth values to have multiple grades of meaning. All contexts are derive a truth/false value given the contexts through which they are presented.

For example "a unicorn exists" maintains a simultaneous true and false value. It maintains a true value under the context of "dream entity" and a false value under the context of "empirical entity". The dichotomy is presented through the context in which the truth value is expressed, but considering this context is always one to further expansion so the truth/false value follows the same nature.

All contexts are thus simultaneously true/false with this necessitating an either/or expression of truth as being a false dichotomy.

Doesn’t falsity mean the same as falseness?

Wouldn’t false or falsehood work just as well as a pseudo?

Yes, and furthermore truth/falsivitiness is a false dichotomy because it also excludes the included middle, ie the unknowable/unknown.
