A interval within the historical past of arithmetic whilst arithmetic and philosophy, frequently thus far clear of one another, looked as if it would meet. The foundational debate is gifted with all its amazing contributions and its shortcomings, its new principles and its misunderstandings.

Meanwhile it is sufficient to generalize in two special directions: first from two sets to any finite number of sets (cf. e. , the property of being different both from l) a and from b. Or, of differing from b. ). I n Latin, however, one has two different particles: aut (exclusive), and we1 (at least one of the two). Compare the sentences “this day is Monday or ( a u t ) Thursday” and “in the next or (wel) the third block you will 6nd a taxi”.

Beginners who want to dispute the possibility of a set being equivalent to a proper subset, frequently make the mistake of basing their arguments on the identical correspondence as though it were superior to other correspondences. Many other instances of sets being equivalent although the one is a proper subset of the other, will appear in $$ 3 and 4. 40 ELEMENTS. C O N C E P T O F CARDIKFAL XUMBER [CH.
