    • Paul Kabay, A Defense of Trivialism (page 36)
      Having noted that, it should be kept in mind that such scholars (i.e. those who reject that Cusanus is trivialist) should not cite as evidence for denying he was a trivialist the fact that Cusanus was an advocate of Aristotelian logic and the Law of Non-Contradiction. This is because an advocacy of both Aristotelian logic and the law of Non-Contradiction are quite compatible with being a trivialist – the trivialist accepts the truth of all propositions, including the Law of Non-Contradiction and other laws of Aristotelian logic.
