This chapter tells how, within a century, the notions of judgment and inference were driven out of logical theory and replaced by propositions and (logical) consequence. Systematic considerations guide the treatment. The history is unashamedly Whiggish: the current position is shown as the outcome, or even culmination, of a historical development.

Keywords: logical theory; judgment; inference; propositions; philosophy

Chapter.  24531 words.  Illustrated.
