of a given set of premises

A proposition that is true for any interpretation of the non-logical symbols (that is, the names (cf. Name) of objects, functions, predicates) for which the premises are true. If a proposition is a logical consequence of a set of propositions , one says that logically implies , or that follows logically from .

If is a set of statements of a formalized first-order logico-mathematical language (cf. Logico-mathematical calculus) and is a proposition of this language, then the relation "A is a logical consequence of G" means that any model for is a model for . This relation is denoted by . The Gödel completeness theorem of classical predicate calculus implies that the relation coincides with the relation , that is, if and only if is deducible from by the methods of classical predicate calculus.
