DESCRIPTION:Among the variety of possible solution
s to the paradoxes of naive set theory, suggestion
s made by the mathematician Heinrich Behmann (1891
--1970) appear to be particularly remarkable (even
though they are commonly unknown today). From Beh
mann’s point of view, the paradoxes do not represe
nt proper contradictions, but rather “meaningless”
expressions that can be avoided by a simple and p
urely syntactical criterion. The main goal of my t
alk is to provide a partial confirmation of Behman
n’s view. To this end, I will present a new system
of natural deduction strongly inspired by Behmann
’s analysis of the set-theoretical paradoxes. It w
ill be demonstrated that a certain subclass of the
proofs in our system has the normalization proper
ty: every deduction in this class may be transform
ed into a “cut-free” proof. As a corollary, it the
n follows that the propositional fragment of our s
ystem is in fact consistent. In the last part of t
he talk, I will discuss some open problems and clo
sely related approaches such as the system of “Fit
ch-Prawitz Set Theory”.
