The limits of abstraction by Kit Fine( Book )

27 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is abstraction? To what extent can it account for the existence and identity of abstract objects? And to what extent can it be used as a foundation for mathematics? Kit Fine provides rigorous and systematic answers to these questions along the lines proposed by Frege, in a book concerned both with the technical development of the subject and with its philosophical underpinnings. Fine proposes an account of what it is for a principle of abstraction to be acceptable, and these acceptable principles are exactly characterized. A formal theory of abstraction is developed and shown to be capable of providing a foundation for both arithmetic and analysis. Fine argues that the usual attempts to see principles of abstraction as forms of stipulative definition have been largely unsuccessful but there may be other, more promising, ways of vindicating the various forms of contextual definition."--Book cover

Logic : structure of reason( Visual )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a tool for characterizing rational thought, logic cuts across many philosophical disciplines and lies at the core of mathematics and computer science. Drawing on Aristotle's Organon, Russell's Principia mathematica, and other central works, this program tracks the evolution of logic beginning with the basic syllogism. A sampling of subsequent topics includes propositional and predicated logic, Bayesian confirmation theory, Boolean logic, Frege's use of variables and quantifiers, Gödel's work with metamathematics, the Vienna Circle's logical positivism and the Turing machine

On the possibility of indeterminacy by David Barnett( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After emphasizing the costs of rejecting the preceding sort of argument, I show how five of the most salient phenomena that give rise to pro-indeterminacy intuitions can be accounted for without postulating genuine indeterminacy. I examine explicitly incomplete definitions, hidden relativity, vagueness, comparatives, and subjunctive conditionals. In each case I suggest a way to account for the phenomenon without postulating indeterminacy

Mereology and location by Shieva Kleinschmidt( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

What kinds of things exist, and how are they related to places and times? What is the structure of objects? What's the world like at the fundamental level, if there is such a level? In this manuscript I look at how our answers to these questions are related to one another. I argue for the incompatability of being liberal about the sorts of location relations objects can bear to places and times, and being conservative about the part/whole structure of objects themselves. I present two responses to this worry; one involves denying liberalism about these location relations for any entities whatsoever, the second involves simply restricting the domain of liberal location relations to a subgroup of entities, to which conservative part/whole rules do not apply. I evaluate these responses in light of extra puzzles, showing that neither solves all of our problems, then look at the implications of each solution for the issue of how entities persist over time
