Quasi-Tautologies: The Case of the Birch Moth

Cuadrado, G.; Salatino, D.R.

The purpose of this paper is to analyze quasi-tautological statements which would provide few information about reality and, therefore, would be difficult to refute. The method employed was to analyze the birch moth problem: (i) comparing two epistemological positions and (ii) investigating a functional pattern of Transcurssive Logic. It was found that quasi-tautologies arise by unlinking a statement from the rest of its theory. In addition, it was found that the deductions of the systemic epistemological position and that of the Transcurssive Logic coincide. The result enables Transcurssive Logic as a powerful method of inquiring into reality.
