    a quantifier is needed

    How should I understand the underlined sentence, especially those words in bold?

    From the psychological point of view, however, there is a very notable distinction between difference and negation. Only in logic does the first presuppose the second. Moreover, a quantifier is needed whose domain of variation is the set of propositions.

    You need something to measure.

    As I see it, he has something to measure - the set of propositions. What is lacking is something to measure it with - a quantifier. (Maybe you meant that).
