The two propositions are different from one another, and hence by the fact that Balzano did not know the concept of indefinite proposition it is not smprising that they have different truth values. One of the most error. Should it be possible to formulate and to solve problems occur- important is expressed by the following remark by Balzano: "It is self- ring in the theory of truth values without the concept of variable and evident that the validity of a sentence must depend on which ideas of indefinite proposition, then such a procedure would even have to be and how many are considered chanfoeable".

Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter remark by the example: if in the proposition: "this triangle has three necessitatem. But if, along with the ical variable, play an important role not only in probability theory idea "this" also the idea "triangle", or instead of those two the idea but also in logic in general. All the laws of formal logic are formulated "side", is taken as changeable, then the degree of vilidity of the propo- and proved with the help of indefinite propositions. For instance, the sition turns out to be quite different, since in addition to true propo- law of the conversion of general negative propositions is: from the sitions we also obtain false ones.

In these propositions occm the logical validity and that of truth value, is strongly borne out if we select examples variables A and B, which may denote all possible objects; hence the propositions themselves are indefinite and can be neither true nor constructed by analogy to those which I have used in the "theory of truth values". According to Balzano, the true definite proposition: false, even though they have no :truth values, which can be calculated, "6-is diviS1ble by 3" and likewise the false proposition: "5 is divisible since the ranges of the values of A and B are not strictly outlined.

But the degree of validity of the these propositions "man" and "angel" are replaced by any other terms, 23 Ibid, Vol. II, p. A misprint seems to have crept into the text, which should then the propositions obtained in this way are always either both true read "mehrere" many instead of "wahre" true. Bolzano, like Aristotle, considers truth and falsehood as exclusive properties of sentences, but not of ideas. I, or both false. If we refuse to accept proposition. That the conceptual truth, e. Mathematics has developed only when former, can be proved conceptually.

But then the existence of the indefinite letters, that is variables, have been introduced instead of object A is not only possible, but also necessary. Hence if we want definite numbers, and the foundations of algebra have been laid in this to define pure possibility, which would be confused neither with neces- way. It need not be mentioned that at present mathematics would :riot sit-y-nor-with--aetttattty,-we-must assume that the second proposition, be possible without the concept of variable; but the concept of mathemat- "A exists", is also not a conceptual truth.

Bolzano's objects falling under the concept A some verify the one proposition procedure can be used as a striking testimony of the fact that the same and some the other, If a person wants to prove, for instance, that neither is also valid in logic: without realizing the lack of consistency in his of the two propositions: "man errs" and "man does not err" is a pure procedure, which he thus accepts, Balzano formulates all logical laws conceptual truth, he must find both human individuals who err and with the help of indefinite propositions, which he denotes sometimes who do not.

But then the existence of erring and non-erring men is not by single letters A, B, C, If we want to sort pure possibility out of etc. It is possible, and only these reasons can be eliminated neither from logic nor from science possible, that "the man x errs", but it is neither necessary nor real, in general, they prove even more necessary when it comes to the expla- since there are erring and non-erring men. It is obvious that Bolzano's nation of possibility and probability.

In my opinion, the essence of pos- definition of the concept of possibility does not lose its validity, since sibility cannot be grasped if it is not reduced to the concept of vari- if there are men who err then the sentence "there are no erring men" able.

Balzano failed to fathom the essence of possibility, although is certainly not conceptual truth. But in addition to Bolzano's negative to explain that concept he chose the path which could have led him condition other, positive, conditions are necessary too in order to ex- to his goal. According to rum, the existence of an object is called possible plain the. These positive conditions consist if it is not impossible. But an object A is impossible if the sentence in the acceptance of logical variables and the assumption that there are "A does not exist" is a pure conceptual truth.

For instance, we say indefinite propositions, which need not be either true or false. On the other hand, it is valid for the concept of probability. Balzano sensed clearly that there possible that a man errs, since there is no conceptual truth which denies is close relationship between the concept of the validity of a proposition the existence of an erring man.

Since, however, the concepts of logical variable tions to be found in Balzano concerning the concept of possibility. Had and of indefinite proposition were not known to him, he did not find he advanced his analysis of this concept somewhat further, he would the correct solution. Balzano defined the concept of -probability as undoubtedly have come across the concepts of variable and of indefinite follows: "We consider I take absolute probability is confused with relative probability, but also the liberty Let A and B stand existence of indefinite propositions.

Copsequently, definite propositions for the following definite propositions: "18 is divisible by 2" and "18 is must be treated as examples of probabilistic propositions. Moreover, divisible by 3". The proposition M might be: "18 is divisible by 5". I am convinced that Bolzano would have changed his mind in view In all these propositions the idea "18" is treated as changeable, and of this consequence, if he had thought.

Grelling's probability theory have sense when the definite numbers 18 or 10 are replaced by the var- More or less at the same time that I first presented my probability. Then the problem is: to find the relative truth value of the theory at the meetings of the Polish Philosophical Society in Lwow, indefinite proposition "x is divisible by 5" with respect to the indefinite the very interesting and valuable paper by Kurt Grelling was published propositions: "xis divisible by 2" and "xis divisible by 3'', under the under the title Die philosophischen Grundlagen der Wahrscheinlich- assumption that x ranges over all two-digit integers.

Both concepts had been known previously, but they have not always been interpreted clearly, and never associated with one another. Representatives of :modern mathematical logic, such as Frege and Russell, knew the concept of indefinite proposition, even if they did not always treat it as a judgement; yet none of them has tried to apply.

I I l: that concept to probabilistic propositions. Bolzano formulated the concept of validity, which corresponds to the concept of truth value, and used it in his own way, though not quite satisfactorily, to explain the concept of probability; but he did not know the concept of indefinite proposition.
