Clearly, all of these valuable traits of fiction can be possessed by literary works, fictional or not, but we can go further and say that literary fictions are the most likely to possess, in the highest degree, the cognitive values just mentioned.

Tarski in the early 1930s completed the mathematization of logic by providing his “definition of truth,” exercising philosophers to a surprising extent ever since. This was formalized and further analyzed by Kreisel, Kripke, and John Myhill in the 1960s. Additional arguments against the possibility of moral dilemmas try to derive a contradiction from the definition of moral dilemmas. Kuhn here insisted that unanticipated discoveries of new sorts of phenomena typically occur in response to the perception of anomaly with regard to the expectations of normal science.

By contrast, immanent realism locates the entities within the spatiotemporal, causal order, typically ascribing them an indispensable causal role. Once a theory is axiomatized, however, it invites a number of general questions concerning the logical relations holding between its propositions, and Hilbert was soon to consider as central among such questions the problem of establishing consistency, or freedom from contradiction. The counterpart of modality in the temporal domain should be called temporality, but it is more common to talk of tense and aspect, the prototypical verbal expressions of temporality.
