Full Idea

We normally think of logical form as exclusively an attribute of sentences; however, the notion may also be taken to have application to objects.

Gist of Idea

Objects, as well as sentences, can have logical form

A Reaction

A striking proposal which seems intuitively right. If one said that objects have 'powers', one might subsume abstract and physical objects under a single account.
