The Logic of Concept Expansion [Book Review]
Review of Metaphysics 57 (1):141-142 (2003)
AbstractBuzaglo offers a systematic account of nonarbitrary concept expansion in mathematics. Roughly, such expansion involves taking a concept, based upon its rules of application, to apply to objects beyond its intended domain. Buzaglo’s book is directed primarily at philosophers of mathematics, though it should equally interest philosophers of science and philosophers of language and logic. It should also interest logicians and mathematicians. Though Buzaglo does not always fully rebut opposing views, he is clear that his book is meant to lay the groundwork for a continuing research program. Graduate students and professional philosophers would profit from the book.
