Comparisons and equivalence - Deepstash

Comparisons and equivalence

  • Not every comparison is an equivalence; it’s possible to compare things without suggesting that they are equal to one another.

  • Not every false equivalence is intentional.
  • Equivalence is subjective; it’s not always possible to clearly determine whether a specific equivalence is false or not.
