Abstract

This paper aims to evaluate works of Frege and Gdel, who play the trigger role in development of logic, by Knowledge Change Model. It identifies where their positions are in the model respectively. For this purpose I suggest types of knowledge change and their criteria for the evaluation. Knowledge change are classified into five types according to the degree of its change: improvement, weak glorious revolution, glorious revolution, strong glorious revolution, and total revolution. Criteria to evaluate the change are its contents, influence, pervasive effects, and so forth. The Knowledge Change Model consists of the types and the criteria. I argue that in the model Frege belongs to the total revolution and Gdel to the weak glorious revolution. If we accept that the revolution in logic initiated by Frege was completed by Gdel, it is a natural conclusion.

Keywords

Knowledge Change Model; weak glorious revolution; total revolution; Frege; Gdel;
