Our setting is Bishop's constructive mathematics ([3], [4], [5], [6], [8] and [15]), mathematics developed with Constructive logic (or Intuitionistic logic) - logic without the Law of Excluded Middle P [disjunction][logical not]P.
Since in Constructive logic the 'Law of Excluded Middle' is not valid, in Bishop's constructive algebra the following relation is also interesting: a relation symmetric to ordered relation [less than or equal to].

While developing in greater detail his own version of antirealism that respects those two constraints, Tennant combines the knowability requirement with the claim that truth need not be bivalent, which in turn leads him to replace classical logic based on bivalence by a nonclassical constructive logic, namely, intuitionistic relevant logic.
