Intermediate quantifiers express logical quantities which fall between Aristotle's two quantities of categorical propositions - universal and particular. Few, many and most express the most commonly referred to intermediate quantifiers, but this book argues that an infinite number can be understood through a deeper examination of the logical nature of all intermediate quantifiers.
