On some concepts associated with finite cardinal numbers

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (6):657-658 (2008)


I catalog several concepts associated with finite cardinals, and then invoke them to interpret and evaluate several passages in Rips et al.'s target article. Like the literature it discusses, the article seems overly quick to ascribe the possession of certain concepts to children (and of set-theoretic concepts to non-mathematicians)
