Talk by Robert Schwartzkopff: ‘Two Tests To Rule Them All?’

Two Tests To Rule Them All?

 

Abstract:

 

Neo-Fregean arguments for arithmetical realism often appeal to certain tests for whether an expression functions as a singular term. The aim of my talk is two-fold. First, I demonstrate, that the tests are generally in good order. Second and time permitting, I argue that they nevertheless cannot be relied upon in the context of neo-Fregean arguments for arithmetical realism.
 
Those interested in some preparatory reading could (but are by no means obliged to) take a look at my article 'Singular Terms Revisited'.
