In the words of Aristotle, that "one cannot say of something that it is and that it is not in the same respect and at the same time".

Given a statement and its negation, p and ~p, the PNC asserts that at most one is true. The PEM asserts that at least one is true. The PNC says "not both" and the PEM. N2 - A common response to those who question the Law of Non-Contradiction (LNC) is that it is impossible to debate such a fundamental law of logic.
