Proof Theory / Hoyningen-Huene: here the abstraction trend is driven even further than with the model theory - to define the metalogical terms we abstract from the meaning of the connectives - The procedure is purely syntactic - a calculus is nothing more than a system of production rules for printing images. > Uninterpreted formal system - the calculi differ in their use of the operators.
