Woodin defines a large cardinal axiom as follows.
"(exists x) phi" is a _large_cardinal_axiom_ if
1. phi(x) is a Sigma_2 formula
2. (As a theorem of ZFC) if kappa is a cardinal such that
V |= phi[kappa]
then kappa is strongly inaccessible, and for all
partial orders P \in V_kappa
V^P |= phi[kappa]."
Let T be the set of all sentences in the language of second-order
arithmetic which are either provable in first-order logic or which are
provable in an extension of ZFC by finitely many large-cardinal axioms
which are all true in V_kappa for some inaccessible kappa. T is a
consistent theory, and assuming two inaccessibles, it contains every
true sentence in the first-order language of arithmetic.
Does T contain every true sentence in the second-order language of
