An analysis of Quine's ``ontological reduction and the world of numbers''

Erkenntnis 53 (1-2):195-218 (2000)
Abstract
A detailed analysis of Quine's paper on ontologicalreduction shows that the proxy-function requirement, in hischaracterization of the concept of ontological reduction,is superfluous for blocking Pythagoreism and inappropriate for a generalblockade of ontological monism.
