artifact description
Dissolution of sceptical conclusions drawn from the Lowenheim-Skolem meta-theorems on the basis of Horwich's Wittgensteinian theory of meaning called `semantic deflationism'. Paper includes a comparatively novel and simple analysis of the Skolemite-skeptical argument. It also claims to solve certain philosophical problems about the practice of set-theory.
