A semantical account of the vicious circle principle

Notre Dame Journal of Formal Logic 20 (3):595-598 (1979)
Here we give a semantical account of propositional quantification that is intended to formally represent Russell’s view that one cannot express a proposition about "all" propositions. According to the account the authors give, Russell’s view bears an interesting relation to the view that there are no sets which are members of themselves.
