Infinity Axiom: The infinity axiom is an axiom of set theory, which ensures that there are infinite sets. It is formulated in e.g. such a way that a construction rule is specified for the occurrence of elements of a described set. If {x} is the successor of x, the continuation is formed by the union x U {x}. See also set theory, successor, unification, axioms._____________ Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

IV 83 Infinity axiom/Russell/Wittgenstein/Tractatus: 5534 would be expressed in the language in that way that there would be infinitely many names with different meanings. - Solution: if we avoid illusionary sentences (E.g. "a = a" E.g. "(Ex) x = a") (this cannot be written down in a correct term notation) - then we can avoid the problems with Russell's infinity axiom. _____________ Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
