“But then, even if we suppose that the premises A and B are true, we can only conclude from this the proposition in question (let us call it Z) – we can only detach it from its premises and affirm it for itself independently of the implication – by admitting that Z is, in turn, true if A and B are true. This amounts to a proposition, C, which remains within the order of implication, and is unable to escape it, since it refers to a proposition, D, which states that ‘Z is true if A, B, and C are true. . . ,’ and so on to infinity.”

(Gilles Deleuze, The Logic of Sense. Trans. Mark Lester)
