Schematic Letters II 201f
Problem: do not reify properties and classes. Solution: distinction between schematic letters and quantifiable variables.
---
IX 7ff~
Predicate letters: F, G, etc. do not introduce anything explicit ((>Scheme).
---
IX 7ff~
Statement schemes: the predicate letters F, G ... should never be considered as variables that take attributes or classes as values ​​- they are kept away from quantifiers and do not appear in statements at all.

Proposition/Object/Quine: If a sentence is supposed to be the name of a proposition (some writers pro, QuineVs), then the proposition is an object - then correct: p or not p for all propositions p - then p is not even variable over objects, and once schematic letter for sentences, but only variable - (no semantic ascent necessary).

Schematic letters/Quine: placeholders for sentences of the object language. They do not belong to the object language itself.

X 77
Model/Quine: of a scheme: is a quantity n-tuple: each schematic letter (for predicates) corresponds to a set, at the beginning of the n-tuple is a non-empty set U, the universal set or value range ​​of the variables x, x, etc. the remaining sets of the model are the values ​​of the set variables a, b, etc. Satisfaction: a model fulfills a scheme, if its set-theoretic analogue (sentence) is true - X 78 e.g. a model.
