As Bolzano conceived of it, logic is not concerned exclusively with the definition of properties propositions and inferences have by virtue of their form, but with a general study of the properties propositions and ideas have, which includes also the determination of such notions as truth, meaning, apriority and necessity, for instance.

By rejecting the view that “syncategorematic”, that is, logical terms should be seen to play a merely incidental role in the analysis of concepts he put into question the idea that then prevailed and according to which ideas contain only “categorematic” components, that is, concepts that have a reference when taken on their own. Bolzano’s approach is partly borrowed from grammatical analyses as they apply to sentences of natural languages. Bolzano assumes that the structure of ideas and propositions is similar to the structure of the linguistic items that compose natural languages.
