Summary/Abstract: The ideatic trajectory of this paper is circular, in the sense that it starts with a general frame concerning the existence of logical objects as classes /sets, concepts, quantifiers etc., as it can be found in one of Godel’s studies, goes through some instances of logic’s discourse involving the assumption of existence (as formalization of the natural language modern syllogistic models, quantification, theory of sets, etc.), advances a possible quantitative view able to avoid some (at least) difficulties implied by the existential import of some perspectives, and finally it returns to the broad frame concerning the existence of logical entities in the view of Godel’s ideas.
