The Language of Logic p ßp pࢳßp T F F F T F 11 This is the opposite case: the formula is false regardless of the truth-values of its constituent atomic formulas. These formulas will be called contradictions (or unsatisfiable). Formulas that are neither contradictions nor tautologies will be called contingencies. Contingent formulas are those in which the corresponding truth tables contain at least one value T and one value F.

They indicate a certain order within combinations of formulas. The rules for their use will not be stated, as they should be obvious from the context. The rules to combine all these signs to produce admissible or well-formed formulas (wffs in the sequel) of PC are the following: Formation rules of wffs for PC (recursive definition of wff of PC):8 - A propositional variable is a wff of PC; - if α is a wff of PC, then ßα is a wff of PC; 7 8 For a more detailed presentation of the basic notions of propositional calculus and predicate logic, any introductory text dedicated to elementary logic may be consulted.

Deontic operators can be interdefined; using O to represent obligation, PH to represent prohibition, and P to represent permission: O primitive: P primitive: PHp = Oßp Op = ßPßp Pp = ßOßp PHp = ßPp This means that we may, for instance, formulate a norm that imposes an obligation in terms of prohibition or permission, and vice versa. ” In his seminal article “Deontic Logic,” G. H. von Wright begins by pointing out the definitional analogies between normative concepts and alethic modal concepts,32 and adds to them the existence of analogous laws of distribution between modal and deontic operators.
