## Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments | |||

Ordinal numbers: ordinals indicate the position of elements within a sequence (expressed by "first", "second", ...). In contrast, cardinal numbers (expressed by "one," two ", ...) indicate the size (cardinality) of sets. See also numbers, sets, order, well-ordering._____________ Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments. | |||

Bertrand Russell Die Mathematik und die Metaphysiker 1901 in: Kursbuch 8 Mathematik 1967 18 Ordinal numbers: result from counting. Objects can only be counted when some come first, and others come afterwards. Cardinal numbers: they are the basic numbers of the infinite numbers (not the ordinal numbers). They are not obtained by sorting and counting, but by a different method, which, if necessary, shows whether a quantity is bigger. This method does not say in the same way as counting how many elements a set has! Each element is linked to a number in pairs. Thus, infinite sets are defined numerically. _____________ Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
