In the next example there are even three levels. 3 : (A /\ B) /\ (B /\ C) → (A /\ B). 3 = [H : (A (ELIM (ELIM (ELIM ) ) ) /\ B) /\ (B /\ C)] H [h1 : A/\ B; h2 : B/\C] h1 [h11 : A; h12 :B] h2 [* : B; h22 : C](Conj A B h11 h12) . Modus Tollens We have seen in Chap. 5 how the law Modus Tollens can be proved. Starting from the idea used in classical reasoning, the rather unusual constructive verification is obtained there. The law, writing simply MT because the generalization “for all x and y” is implied by (x,y : Prop), stated as a hypothesis reads as follows: HYPOTHESIS MT : (x,y : Prop) (~y /\ (x → y)) → ~x.
Be what you would seem to be” or 2. ” Consider first (1). CONSTANT Alice : Prop. CONSTANT be : Prop → Prop → Prop. CONSTANT what-you-seem-to-be : Prop → Prop. Note (be Alice (what-you-would-seem-to-be Alice)) : Prop. “Be Alice what you would seem to be Alice” Then go to (2). In order to simplify the advice we replace the first line of (2) by the (perhaps not quite grammatical) line. “Imagine yourself Alice to be never not otherwise than” CONSTANT imagine-yourself-to-be : Prop → Prop → Prop. CONSTANT otherwise-than : Prop → Prop.
Examples of using negation are given in Part II. Implication The introduction rule for implication is DEFINE imp : Prop → Prop → Prop := [A, B : Prop] A → B → Prop. Assuming the types X : Prop, Y : Prop, note the following imp : Prop → Prop → Prop (imp X) : Prop → Prop (imp X Y) : Prop. We could have written imp : (Prop → (Prop → Prop)) using the convention of brackets associating to the right in mappings. For binary connectives we (might) also use infix notation, for easy reading by humans. Implication occupies a central position in LINCOS.
