Jean-Yves Béziau the metalogical hexagon of opposition
The difference between truth and logical truth is a fundamental distinction of modern logic promoted by Wittgenstein. We show here how this distinction leads to a metalogical triangle of contrariety which can be naturally extended into a metalogical hexagon of oppositions, representing in a direct and simple
way the articulation of the six positions of a proposition vis-à-vis a theory. A particular case of this hexagon is a metalogical hexagon of propositions which can be interpreted in a modal way. We end by a semiotic hexagon emphasizing the value of true symbols, in particular the logic hexagon itself.
