How does a law of logic speak to thought? How, if at all, might the world speak to such a law's truth? Is there such a thing as things being other than it says? What does it say? This chapter explores these questions by developing an idea of Putnam's, as set out in his ‘Rethinking Logical Necessity’.

Keywords: logic; calculus; logical truth; immunity from proving false
