Luca Incurvati’s Conceptions of Set, 2

We are still on Chapter 1 of Luca’s book. Sorry about taking longer than I had intended to get back to this. But I’d promised myself to get the answers to the Exercises for Chs 32 and 33 of IFL2 (on natural deduction for quantifier arguments) done and dusted. Thirty eight pages(!) of work later, they are online! ¶ Let’s take it that the concept of set is (at least in part) characterized by Luca’s three conditions — Unity (a set is in some sense a unity, distinct from its members), Unique Decomposition (a set decomposes into its members in just one way), Extensionality. ¶ Which leaves more to be said, no doubt. But then there are various possible views of the role of the further story we need. ¶ Suppose, for example, that you hold that the concept of set, as pre-theoretically grasped, is governed by the following assumption: that for any coherent predicate there is a set of objects which satisfy it. Then, rapidly, we get to a classically inconsistent naive set theory. Put on hold for now the option of revising your logic as a palliative. Then you’ll want to work with a classically consistent replacement concept of set*. And the further story we need is an elaboration of this replacement concept. ¶ Suppose alternatively that, as far as it goes, the concept of set is consistent enough. Then that leaves open a spectrum of possible views (at least I take it there is a spectrum... -

Luca Incurvati’s Conceptions of Set — 1 I’m really pleased to see that Luca Incurvati’s long-awaited Conceptions of Set and the Foundations of Mathematics has now been published by CUP. It’s currently jolly expensive. So let’s hope for an early inexpensive paperback. Happily, though, you will be able now to read an e-version of the book for free if your library has appropriate access to the Cambridge Core platform. So I’m going to assume I’m not the only one with access to... Logic Matters -

Episteme and Techne [Revised entry by Richard Parry on March 27, 2020. Changes to: Main text] Episteme is the Greek word most often translated as knowledge, while techne is translated as either craft or art. These translations, however, may inappropriately harbor some of our contemporary assumptions about the relation between theory (the domain of 'knowledge') and practice (the concern of 'craft' or 'art'). In our era, the paradigm of theory is pure mathematics, that has no obvious application... Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy -


AN OBVIOUS FACT THAT I HAVE NOT SEEN REMARKED ON Trump has refused, in response to the pandemic, to use the very great presidential powers that existing laws give him.  Why?  Well, thus far the COVD-19 "hot spots" have all been in heavily Democratic states that he has no chance of carrying in the election.  A second fact:  a number of governors have made requests for federal medical supplies; the only governor whose requests have been fully met is Republican DeSantis of Florida.
