I'm not sure from that brief description what that distinction is  
supposed to be, but there is certainly a clear sense in which meanings  
-- typically understood as truth conditions -- in standard logic are  
"objective".  Indeed,  I can't really think of a sense in which they  
are not.  So whatever is "other" about the other logic you mention,  
it's got to be something other than that.    (02)
