This involved the identification, first, of the logical constituents of propositions, that is, the logical constants, but second, more importantly, of the logical propositions themselves, and in particular, of the fundamental propositions or logical principles from which all other logical propositions can be derived. An interesting implication of doing so is that the rationale for requiring equality under any just distribution becomes decreasingly clear.

The Holy See describes the school as a community in four areas: the teamwork among all those involved; the cooperation between educators and bishops; the interaction of students with teachers; and the school's physical environment.
Can educational research aim at objectivity and the production of objective results, or is it inevitably subjective? Familiarity will make a personal relationship easier, but a certain distance is also needed. Fortunately, in the last thirty years or so resources have become available that significantly alleviate these problems. An account of the relationship between American pragmatism and analytic philosophy is provided by Cheryl Misak in chapter. The journal Analysis was founded in 1933, and in the pages of both it and the Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society there was both lively discussion of the nature of analysis and examples of its use that also generated debate. Both Russell and Moore, then, came to adopt a crude form of direct realism, and this was at the heart of their rebellion against British idealism.
