Zero, Naught, Null | I 107 Def Zero/Frege: because nothing falls under the concept "unlike itself", we declare: - 0 is the number that is equal to the concept "unlike itself". I 110 0/1/Zero/One/Numbers/Frege: 0 is the object that falls under the concept "equal to 0" - thus an object (the zero) falls under the concept. - Because an object falls under the concept, the concept is assigned the number 1 (1 object, the zero). - On the other hand, 0: no object falls under the concept "equal to 0 but not equal to 0" - hence 0 is the number which corresponds to the concept. IV 98 Subset/Element/Frege: must always be distinguished. FregeVsSchröder/FregeVsRegion Calculus - the zero must not be contained as an element in every class - otherwise it would depend on the respective manifold - at one point it would be nothing, and then it would be something (e.g., negation of a). - Solution: Zero as a subset (empty set). IV 100 Zero/0/Empty Set/FregeVsSchröder/Frege: The zero must not be contained as an element in another class (>Günter Patzig, introduction to Frege IV), but only subordinate as a class. (+ IV 100/101). ((s) zero only contained as a subset in any other set). |
