Furthermore, another important datum is that, while the mental model of biconditional
is the same as that of conditional, the fully explicit models of biconditional
are only these ones:
2005, Experiment 1) found that inferences were drawn faster from the antecedent to the consequent in the conditional ("if A, then B", "if B, then C") and in the biconditional
("if and only if A, B", "if and only if B, C"), but that inferences were drawn faster from the consequent to the antecedent in the reverse conditional ("A if B" "B if C").
that realization presupposes species-specific biconditional
laws (Kim, 1981, p.
with the right-hand side of the biconditional
explaining the content of the left.
For reasons comparable to those described in connection with Lukasiewicz's system, a biconditional
in which either side has the truth value I will have the truth value I.
Here again he found that conjunctive, biconditional
, and conditional interpretations predominated.
2) Using our biconditional
, we can infer that the number of numbers would be 0.
The concept which is being reduced--the left side of the biconditional
--cannot reappear on the right side of the biconditional
or else the reduction is not successful.
AC and DA inferences are valid only for biconditional
interpretations of conditionals that include only the two symmetric models 'A and B' and 'not-A and not-B'.
The right-hand side of that biconditional
is a purely Euclidean fact.
But the ambiguous phrase concerning the relationship between Caesar and Kilpatrick as to their respective fates being biconditional
events seems to displace the notion of an archetypal form.
Whether a stronger formulation is possible is an empirical issue, but a tentative assumption would be that the "dual mirroring" requirement of the last clause may provide a check on interference effects, thus allowing for a biconditional
version of the principle.
