In Parts of Classes, David Lewis outlined a reduction of ZFC to a second order mereology. His conclusion takes on the following form in this reconstruction: ZFC is susceptible to parameterized interpretation in M (classical second order mereology) plus, ?there is a strongly unreachable partition.? The proof makes use of the fact that ordered pairs... more...
