Speaker: Harald Bastiaanse
Title: The Intensional Many - Conservativity Reclaimed
Date:
Time: 16:00 - 17:30
Location: room 308, Vendelstraat 8

Following on Westerståhl's argument that many is not Conservative, I propose an intensional account of Conservativity as well as intensional versions of EXT and Isomorphism closure. I show that an intensional reading of many can easily possess all three of these, and provide a formal statement and proof that they are indeed proper intensionalizations.
