Talk: Varieties of Class-Theoretic Potentialism

This will be a talk on 09 March 2022 in the Oslo Infinity and Intensionality seminar on 09 March 2022. Handout here.

We explain and explore class-theoretic potentialism—the view that one can always individuate more classes over a set-theoretic universe. We examine some motivations for class-theoretic potentialism, before proving some results concerning the relevant potentialist systems (in particular exhibiting failures of the .2 and .3 axioms). We then discuss the significance of these results for the different kinds of class-theoretic potentialist.
