Sentential constants in R and R⌝


In this paper, we shall confine ourselves to the study of sentential constants in the system R of relevant implication.

In dealing with the behaviour of the sentential constants in R, we shall think of R itself as presented in three stages, depending on the level of truth-functional involvement.
