But that implies 16 Introduction that the explanation of what truth is comes before the question of whether it can be apprehended and communicated. ” And then when we explain what truth is, we already presuppose that it is possible to make true statements about the essence of truth. The intention to discuss something presupposes the prospect and intention of clarifying it.

But mental reality is the theme of psychology. Therefore, [38] the basic project of logic—which is to get the laws of thought and to characterize the very act of thinking (which still remains a mental process)—belongs within the competence of psychology. So psychology is logic’s foundational discipline. Thus John Stuart Mill writes: [Logic] is not a Science distinct from, and coordinate with, Psychology. 2 Its theoretic grounds are wholly borrowed from Psychology, and include as much of that science as is required to justify the rules of the art.

The laws not only do not govern mental events, they do not even presuppose them. γ) Because the meaning of natural laws is that they pertain to empirical facts, they also can get their foundation only from these facts— that is, only by observing and surveying such facts—by way of induction. As regards their validity all these laws, even the most general ones like the law of gravity, are fundamentally only probable, even if this probability is of the highest order. As empirical laws, their defining mark is to be probable.
