Axiology (Gk. science of value). Theory of values that holds that results of psychology, religion, logic, philos., metaphysics, etc. are to be correlated. See also Baden School; Windelband, Wilhelm.
Statement regarded as self-evident and accepted without proof. The modern tendency is to doubt axiomatic propositions. The existence of God is often treated as axiomatic in the Bible (Jn 14:1; Heb 11:6), though evidences are also treated.
