 All logical systems must be able to be formalised. Otherwise they are not complete. 
The question is not whether a logical system is able or cannot to be formalised. But how 
the formalised form of logic relates to reality to natural, social and , if you like, epistemological  relations.
Husserl gives a very good explanation of this in his  "Crises of European Sciences". He explains that 
formalisation itself is an outcome of historical social developments.

I have a question for Jerry or anyone else. Is there any logical system 
that cannot be formalized? If so, how does one express such a logic?
