Since the theory of properties, relations, and propositions (PRPs) is a full-fledged part of natural logic, it can support a well justified logicist philosophy of mathematics. This chapter argues that this version of logicism is free from the standard criticisms of logicism, even those that proved fatal to the original logicism of Frege and Russell.

Keywords: logicism; properties; relations; propositions; philosophy of mathematics
