It is possible to give many other arithmetical interpretations of the symbols of the propositional calculus that preserve the truth of its axioms and the validity of its rules. Some of these involve only the numbers 1 and 0, but others involve some other numbers as well. The first section of this chapter describes two-valued and three-valued arithmetic. The second section compares two-valued and three-valued systems to sailing. It also clarifies the relations between these systems and ordinary propositional calculus. The last section considers intuitionist calculus.
