Universe I 104
Universe/Classes/Sets/Model/"all"/Field: as the universe of all classes is too large to form a countable model, it is too big to form a class and therefore too large, to form any (over-countable) model.
II 335
Universe/Standard-Platonism/Field: (thesis: "There's only one universe") - Problem: /PutnamVsPlatonism: How can we make it at all possible to pick out the "full" (universal) universe and to make it face a partial universe, and accordingly the standard-element-relation in contrast to a non-standard-element-relation? (Putnam 1980) - Putnam: Thesis: we cannot do that - i.e. that the "incomplete content" of the concepts "quantity" and "element of" is not sufficient to determine the truth value of all set theoretical theorems.
