When at long intervals we turn over their abstruse pages, wonderful seems the calm and grand air of these few, these great spiritual lords who have walked in the world,--these of the old religion,--dwelling in a worship which makes the sanctities of Christianity look parvenues and popular; for "persuasion is in soul, but necessity is in intellect." This band of grandees, Hermes, Heraclitus, Empedocles, Plato, Plotinus, Olympiodorus, Proclus, Synesius and the rest, have somewhat so vast in their logic, so primary in their thinking, that it seems antecedent to all the ordinary distinctions of rhetoric and literature, and to be at once poetry and music and dancing and astronomy and mathematics.

Wolenski comes up with a supposed reductio of the claim that (T)-equivalences are analytic (234-236); but the argument presupposes that one can push the analyticity claim into the object-language and that derivability distributes over equivalences, which need not hold in non-standard logics. Wolenski also comes up with a (new) paradox directed at theories like verificationism, which pose conditions on a sentence being meaningful (318); but the argument assumes that a sentence which is meaningful and wrongly says of itself that it isn't thereby (i.e., by being false) says that it is false.

"Logica Universalis" will be produced twice a year to carry research papers related to universal features of logics. Topics covered include general tools and techniques for studying already existing logics and building new ones, the study of classes of logics, the scope of validity, and the philosophical and historical aspects of general concepts of logic.
