Reply To: All or some


Thank you for responding. I don’t recall where I got the idea that without modifiers proposition were understood to be universal by default. However it does seem to me you are correct.
In order to ensure I do grasp this concept correctly i would be grateful if you could tell me if the following is correct:

If one made the statement “triangles have three sixty degree angles”. We would be obliged by the principle of charity to conclude that the person was referring to equalateral triangles and conclude that this was a true statement as opposed to offering right triangles as a counter example and conclude the statement was false.

Once again thank you for taking the time to respond. It is greatly appreciated.
