How to use "Selfevident fact" in context?
One of the most basic assumptions of logic and reason is the self-evident fact. This is a fact that is so obvious that it does not require proof, and is considered to be true by most. The concept of the self-evident fact was first introduced by the philosopher and mathematician, William of Ockham, in the 13th century. Ockham argued that there is a limit to the amount of information that can be conveyed in language, and that some concepts are so basic and obvious that they do not need to be explained.
