Therefore, ZF2 with a substitutional reading of the second-order quantifiers is a genuine ambiguity. In contrast, under an ontology-committing reading of the quantifiers, the objectual interpretation is ontologically determining, and presupposes a number of metaphysical arguments or decisions. 13 The different interpretations of second-order quantifiers also concern (2) methodology. For, under the substitutional interpretation, the bounds of language are to be taken more seriously in the methodology of making proofs because which inferences are legitimate will sometimes depend on the number of names available for quantification.

Chapter 3 Motivating Maddy’s Naturalist to Adopt Pluralism Abstract In this chapter, the reader is taken on a journey from Maddy’s naturalist position to a more pluralist position.

8 Conclusion We have now completed the first journey. Recalling the sights we visited, we saw pluralism within ZF foundationalism. This took the form of noting the ambiguity in the very idea of Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory. We then also noted that ZF is, References 29 in some sense, an uncompleted theory. There are many, together incompatible, extensions of ZF. So, we might think of ZF as a foundational programme, rather than as a foundation. We might then examine our attitudes concerning different extensions, and the pluralist’s attitude is one of agnosticism concerning eventual convergence of set theory to one theory with the four philosophical characteristics: determining the scope, ontology, methodology and epistemology of mathematics.
