Assertion/Modus Ponens/Ryle: "code style": misleading that p does not have to be asserted! - E.g. "if p, then q; but p, therefore q". - Conditional/Ryle: Thesis: antecedent and consequent are no assertions. - Statements are neither needed nor mentioned in conditionals. - Ryle: here, the conditional is not a premise that coordinates with "p" as the "code style" suggests, but rather an "inference ticket", a "license for the inference": "p, therefore q". - Solution/Geach: it is about propositions, not assertions.
