Two Kinds Of Truth

There are two kinds of truths: truth of reasoning and truths of fact. Truths of reasoning are necessary and their opposite is impossible; those of fact are contingent and their opposite is possible.

~ Gottfried Leibniz


  1. Hi, taking nothing away from Gottfried’s quote but another way of putting it across in mathematical terms could be
    Truth could be an axiom or a theorem where axiom would be an irrefutable fact and theorem could be a truth that can be proved.
    Thanks and much appreciated for sharing
