Roxana: Its lack of intellectual discipline was only slightly irritating. Bob: Sorry, we got carried away. Just to complete the introductions, I’m Bob, and this is Sarah. Roxana: That is enough time on trivialities. I will explain the error in what the woman called ‘Sarah’ said. The Terrors of Truth 45 Sarah: Call me ‘Sarah’, not ‘the woman called “Sarah” ’, if you please. Bob: ‘Sarah’ is shorter. Sarah: Not only that. We’ve been introduced.

Sarah: In that case, isn’t Aristotle’s point utterly trivial? Roxana: Once one has understood it, yes. Nevertheless, you violated it. Sarah: Are you suggesting that I am mentally defective? Roxana: No, I am not going that far. I simply point out that you violated an elementary principle of the logic of truth. Bob: Sarah is a highly intelligent and very well-educated lady, Roxana.

Roxana: No, the trouble was your confusion of truth with certainty, not anything in the elementary logic of 54 Tetralogue ‘true’ and ‘false’. Sarah saw the point much faster than you did. Sarah: Don’t patronize me, Roxana. Roxana: I merely stated a truth.
