Abstract

In this chapter, we turn to the first class of negative truths the positivist has to struggle with, namely that of negative predicational propositions (“negative predications” for short). Propositions of this class are expressed, for example, by the following sentences: “Socrates is not dumb.”; “Mary does not love John.”; “This pen is not red.”; and so on.
