###### 4. Formal Logic / F. Set Theory ST / 4. Axioms for Sets / j. Axiom of Choice IX
 10301 The axiom of choice is controversial, but it could be replaced
###### 5. Theory of Logic / A. Overview of Logic / 5. First-Order Logic
 10588 First-order logic is Complete, and Compact, with the Löwenheim-Skolem Theorems
###### 5. Theory of Logic / A. Overview of Logic / 7. Second-Order Logic
 10298 Some say that second-order logic is mathematics, not logic
 10299 If the aim of logic is to codify inferences, second-order logic is useless
###### 5. Theory of Logic / B. Logical Consequence / 1. Logical Consequence
 10300 Logical consequence can be defined in terms of the logical terminology
###### 5. Theory of Logic / G. Quantification / 5. Second-Order Quantification
 10290 Second-order variables also range over properties, sets, relations or functions
###### 5. Theory of Logic / J. Model Theory in Logic / 3. Löwenheim-Skolem Theorems
 10292 Downward Löwenheim-Skolem: if there's an infinite model, there is a countable model
 10590 Up Löwenheim-Skolem: if natural numbers satisfy wffs, then an infinite domain satisfies them
 10296 The Löwenheim-Skolem Theorems fail for second-order languages with standard semantics
 10297 The Löwenheim-Skolem theorem seems to be a defect of first-order logic
###### 6. Mathematics / B. Foundations for Mathematics / 4. Axioms for Number / e. Peano arithmetic 2nd-order
 10294 Second-order logic has the expressive power for mathematics, but an unworkable model theory
###### 8. Modes of Existence / B. Properties / 11. Properties as Sets
 10591 Logicians use 'property' and 'set' interchangeably, with little hanging on it
