Not all of us accept the Laws of Logic of Aristotle to be Absolute Truth. Quantum and Astro Physics would quarrel with the excluded middle, etc. Logic may need to be re-defined/described. -------------------------------------- Modern logic is not Aristotelian and hasn't been since the great work of Frege in the late 19th century. Stoic logic is closer to modern propositional logic in that it deals not just with classes of things (the subjects and predicates of Aristotelian logic) but with entire sentences, and with logical constants such as 'or,' etc. However, I'm not sure how quantum physics 'quarrels' with the law of the excluded middle.
