What is Semantic Logicism?

Semantic logicism is the metaphysical component of the logical semantic project, signifying the theoretical commitment to a Platonic foundationalism, in terms of the formal system of theoretical semantics. Where logicism is the view that the discipline of mathematics is reducible to a definable series of logical principles, semantic logicism is simply the extension of the logicist program to linguistic considerations. To be a semantic logicist is to say that you believe in a foundation by which to objectively account for the necessary components of the possibility of language by discovering the underlying logical principles of meaning and reference.
