In the case of number-theoretic concepts such as `is a prime number' or `is smaller than', U0 would be the set of natural numbers. 18 Franz von Kutschera If we now re¯ect upon such ®rst-order concepts and take them as new objects and add them to U0, thereby going from U0 to a more inclusive set U1, we can also de®ne second-order concepts on this new set, such as `is a transitive relation' or `is an instance of the property . . '. We can then repeat this step and count also second-order concepts among our objects, arriving at a still larger set U2.
