Constructivism | I XX Constructivist attitude/Constructivism/Russell/Gödel: was abandoned in the first edition, since the reducibility axiom for higher types makes it necessary that basic predicates of infinitely high type exist - of constructivism only remains 1) Classes as facon de parler 2). The definition of ~, v, etc. as valid for propositions that contain quantifiers 3) Gradual construction of functions of orders higher than 1 (superfluous of course, because of the reducibility-axiom) 4) Interpretation of definitions as mere typographical shortcuts. GoedelVs: because of reducibility axiom: there always exist real objects in the form of basic predicates corresponding to each defined symbol. I XX Constructivist attitude/Constructivism/Principia Mathematica/Gödel: is taken in again in the second edition and the reducibility axiom is dropped. - It is determined that all basic predicates belong to the lowest type. |
