A review of the 1st edition of Lepore's Meaning and Argument, in which the reviewer (me), on the one hand, says that the text contains no proof theory and, on the other, subsequently notes that Lepore makes use of the truth tree method. I guess, at the time, I thought that only axiomatic systems and natural deduction systems fell under the rubric "proof theory". Sorry. Other than that I suppose the review is mildly informative.
