Is there any significant difference in meaning or usage between an axion and an assumption ?
I've read the dictionary entries but I'm still confused.
An axiom is a self-evident truth that requires no proof.
An assumption is a supposition, or something that is take for granted without questioning or proof.
However, Axiom in Logic has a slightly different meaning of a proposition that is assumed without proof for the sake of studying the consequences that follow from it.
