Peirce, frege, the logic of relations, and church's theorem

History and Philosophy of Logic 5 (1):49-66 (1984)
In this essay, I discuss some observations by Peirce which suggest he had some idea of the substantive metalogical differences between logics which permit both quantifiers and relations, and those which do not. Peirce thus seems to have had arguments?which even De Morgan and Frege lacked?that show the superior expressiveness of relational logics
