Consistency

An axiomatic system is said to be consistent if one cannot deduce contradictory truths from it. Consistency is a crucial property of an axiomatic system since, in classical logics, being able to prove a statement and its opposite allows one to prove anything else. However, consistency is impossible to prove in numerous axiomatic systems and must be taken for granted.
