V 163
Russell s paradox / properties / Sainsbury: basic problem: if properties can be applied to themselves - most do not. E.g. the property of being a person is a property and not a person! So it does not apply to the property of being a person. - But some properties are true of themselves. - E.g. the property of being a man is not a man - but the property of being a non-man, is itself a non-man. - V 165 There is a relationship with Cantor s proof that the power set of each class has more elements than the class itself, but you can block Russell s paradox, and still allow the proof of Cantor.
