Agreement And Disagreement In Belief And Attitude In Logic

Some take the “unbeliever” as a simple lack of faith in something. Others take the “unbeliever” as faith in the negation of something.

Indeed, an over-reliance on emotionally charged language can give the impression of disagreement between parties that do not differ at all from the facts, and it can just as easily mask material quarrels as emotional concordance. As the degrees of harmony in faith and attitude are independent of one another, four possible combinations are at work: this is of course a natural function of ordinary language.

But if we are primarily eager to establish the truth as we are, when we judge the logical virtues of an argument, the use of emotionally charged words can easily distract us from our purpose. After understanding the above, we can move on to the second part of this article. I propose that we define consistency and disagreement by analogy with the words defined above….
