### Abstract

this paper is clearly stated, after recalling how the logical connectives can be explained in term of the Sheffer connective: "We are led to the idea, which at first glance certainly appears extremely bold of attempting to eliminate by suitable reduction the remaining fundamental notions, those of proposition, propositional function, and variable, from those contexts in which we are dealing with completely arbitrary, logical general propositions . . . To examine this possibility more closely and to pursue it would be valuable not only from the methodological point of view that enjoins us to strive for the greatest possible conceptual uniformity but also from a certain philosophic, or if you wish, aesthetic point of view."
