Sets/(s): sets with non-numbers as elements: - sets of possible worlds - these are not sorted like numbers. - Stalnaker: he considers the choice function f(A,i) to be the only element of a set. - In contrast to Lewis: he considers the selected set to be the set itself - distinction set/element/(s): not possible like this with numbers, because the set {0.1}, which corresponds to the number 1, does not have a single element. - FregeVs: 0 is a subset, not an element.
