Counting and the natural numbers

Philosophy of Science 37 (3):405-416 (1970)
Early sections of the paper develop a view of the natural numbers and a view of counting which are suggested by the remarks of several modern philosophers. Further investigation of these views leads to one of the main theses of the paper: a special kind of quantifier, the "numerical quantifier" is essential to counting. The remainder of the paper suggests the rudiments of a new view of the natural numbers, a view which maintains that numerical quantifiers are one kind of natural number
