On properties and processes of numerical assignment: an empiricist approach

Giovanni Boniolo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


By starting from the idea of processes of numerical assignment, an explication, àla Kant, of the concept of property is proposed. In this way two results are achieved: on the one hand, the Kantian doctrine of explication is revaluated; on the other hand, the notion of property is tackled from an empiricist point of view based on the representational theory of measurement.
