ZFC2 if not just a many sorted first order language quantifies over the properties used in first order ZFC. ZFC2 is thus a property theory. Comprehension says there is a property corresponding to any (first order) open formula in the language, only by an extensional perspective can these 36 LIMITATIONS OF SIZE quantifiers be read as referring to classes. The second order variables thus are in this extensional perspective not ambiguous: “X(y)” can be read as y having either the property or belonging to the class X.
E. the sets which are built by separation using a formula ϕ of the language) makes use of the classes V and L and is in fact a non-standard version of ZFC+GCH (with restricted Powerset, of course). A more radical version to the stepwise approach to set existence is (radical) constructivism. The constructivist allows only for those sets which either have been individually or generically shown to exist. Allowing for schemes of existence proofs results in embracing a totality where not all instances have been shown individually.
Rational and real numbers are introduced as sets of sets of natural numbers. e. get beyond the empty set) one has to ensure that for arbitrary subsets of т their union exists, and this is an existential commitment to infinity. One such axiom of infinity then is: (INF) (∀x)(x ⊂ т ⊃ x ∈ U). The main problem for our topic universality is, on the one hand, again the presupposed and non explicit meta-theory. For instance: the quantifier in (≤) has to range over the set of all finite sets, and this set, of course, is a non-finite set.
