The Cupola of a Proposition

An amusing typo:

Indeed, the book concludes, logicians often think of things like the cupola of a proposition "almost as if it were a living, conscious entity, capable of declaring for itself what it chose to mean."

Apparently the copula is indeed a living, conscious entity, capable of declaring for itself what it chose to mean; and apparently it chose to be a dome. I am charmed by the thought of a proposition having architectural features.
