Description Levels: Levels result from dividing a domain into sub-domains, for which different rules for making statements are valid. Thus, e.g. other statements are made about sets than about their elements. See also metalanguage, object language, theories, metatheory, metalogic, metasemantics, meta-ethics, meta-level, paradoxes, order, 2nd order logic, higher order logic, HOL, completeness.
