Abstract

Gabriel Uzquiano has offered an account of indefinite extensibility for sets in the context of a modal logic. The modal operators are interpreted in terms of linguistic extensibility. After reviewing the proposal, I argue that the view should be understood as a version of in rebus structuralism about set theory. As such it is subject to the usual problems for in rebus structuralism. In particular, there is no good extra set-theoretic reason to assent to an ontology of sufficient cardinality to make true the theorems of ZFC.
