Pluralities and Sets

Journal of Philosophy 107 (3):144-164 (2010)
Abstract
Say that some things form a set just in case there is a set whose members are precisely the things in question. For instance, all the inhabitants of New York form a set. So do all the stars in the universe. And so do all the natural numbers. Under what conditions do some things form a set?
