Lecture Series: The Axiomatic Theory of Abstract Objects
22 May @ 11:00 - 24 May @ 13:00
The objectives of the course are to familiarize participants with the theory of objects, developed and defended by Prof. Ed Zalta, and to more generally discuss the topics with which it deals, such as: logical classes, situations, possible and impossible worlds, concepts, Forms, fictions, Fregean senses, Fregean numbers, and mathematical individuals and relations.
In this lecture series, we present a body of theorems formally derivable from the axioms of “object theory”. The axioms are motivated and presented in the first lecture, and once they are in place, we define a variety of abstract objects and systematize them by deriving the their governing principles as theorems. We identify and derive principles governing: truth-values, logical classes, situations, possible worlds, impossible worlds, concepts (including complete individual concepts), Forms, fictions, Fregean senses, Fregean (natural) numbers, and theoretical mathematical individuals and relations generally.
