The paper deals with the notions of consistency, completeness, and coherence within the normative domain. It investigates their mutual relations by singling out relative (to negation) and absolute consistency, weak, strong and trivial completeness, and three different functions of coherence (simplification, integration, and defeasance). The main upshot of the inquiry is that coherence may be regarded as a combination of weak completeness, lack of strong completeness, and possible absence of consistency with respect to negation. It is also maintained that coherence may work as a warrant for absolute normative consistency.

Consistencia, completitud y coherencia de los sistemas normativos

Abstract

The paper deals with the notions of consistency, completeness, and coherence within the normative domain. It investigates their mutual relations by singling out relative (to negation) and absolute consistency, weak, strong and trivial completeness, and three different functions of coherence (simplification, integration, and defeasance). The main upshot of the inquiry is that coherence may be regarded as a combination of weak completeness, lack of strong completeness, and possible absence of consistency with respect to negation. It is also maintained that coherence may work as a warrant for absolute normative consistency.
