I need the word for something can you help
One of my main interests is studying axioms in philosophy, what can we reasonably assume, in mathematics and philosophy, I'm having trouble finding a word for the study of it, I assumed it would be axiometrics but i got no results... is there a word for the study of axioms?

Propositional logic?

I think axiomatic systems is a thing. Perhaps...axiomatic systems analysis ... ?

no axiology is a broad term for ethics and values, I'm talking about epistemology.

no it's more the study of the assumptions required for propositional logic such as aristotle's law of identity (A=A), study of a reasonable assertion. Are they obvious... meta logic i guess? Etc.
