Believing the Axioms II

<p>Radek Honzik will discuss P. Maddy's paper Believing the Axioms II (JSL 1988).</p>

Believing the Axioms II is a continuation of the first paper by Maddy and deals with the Axiom of Determinacy (AD). The paper attempts to argue that AD (or its variants) may be a good candidate for a new strong axiom of set theory. The seminar will review the basic points of the paper (prior knowledge of the paper is not necessary).
