###### 4. Formal Logic / F. Set Theory ST / 1. Set Theory
 13451 The two best understood conceptions of set are the Iterative and the Limitation of Size [Rayo/Uzquiano]
###### 4. Formal Logic / F. Set Theory ST / 4. Axioms for Sets / m. Axiom of Separation
 13452 Some set theories give up Separation in exchange for a universal set [Rayo/Uzquiano]
###### 5. Theory of Logic / G. Quantification / 2. Domain of Quantification
 13449 We could have unrestricted quantification without having an all-inclusive domain [Rayo/Uzquiano]
 13450 Absolute generality is impossible, if there are indefinitely extensible concepts like sets and ordinals [Rayo/Uzquiano]
###### 5. Theory of Logic / G. Quantification / 5. Second-Order Quantification
 13453 Perhaps second-order quantifications cover concepts of objects, rather than plain objects [Rayo/Uzquiano]
###### 9. Objects / A. Existence of Objects / 5. Individuation / e. Individuation by kind
 16235 Persistence conditions cannot contradict, so there must be a 'dominant sortal' [Burke,M, by Hawley]
 14753 The 'dominant' of two coinciding sortals is the one that entails the widest range of properties [Burke,M, by Sider]
###### 9. Objects / B. Unity of Objects / 1. Unifying an Object / b. Unifying aggregates
 16072 'The rock' either refers to an object, or to a collection of parts, or to some stuff [Burke,M, by Wasserman]
###### 9. Objects / B. Unity of Objects / 3. Unity Problems / b. Cat and its tail
 14751 Tib goes out of existence when the tail is lost, because Tib was never the 'cat' [Burke,M, by Sider]
###### 9. Objects / B. Unity of Objects / 3. Unity Problems / c. Statue and clay
 16071 Sculpting a lump of clay destroys one object, and replaces it with another one [Burke,M, by Wasserman]
 16234 Burke says when two object coincide, one of them is destroyed in the process [Burke,M, by Hawley]
 13278 Maybe the clay becomes a different lump when it becomes a statue [Burke,M, by Koslicki]
###### 9. Objects / B. Unity of Objects / 3. Unity Problems / d. Coincident objects
 14750 Two entities can coincide as one, but only one of them (the dominant sortal) fixes persistence conditions [Burke,M, by Sider]
###### 14. Science / C. Induction / 5. Paradoxes of Induction / b. Raven paradox
 19000 Read 'all ravens are black' as about ravens, not as about an implication [Belnap]
###### 14. Science / D. Explanation / 2. Types of Explanation / a. Types of explanation
 17897 Analytic explanation is wholes in terms of parts; synthetic is parts in terms of wholes or contexts [Belnap]
###### 19. Language / F. Communication / 5. Pragmatics / a. Contextual meaning
 13448 The domain of an assertion is restricted by context, either semantically or pragmatically [Rayo/Uzquiano]
