Abstract

Apparently, Polish logicians count differently from most people. This is because they operate with different munerical criteria. Disagreements between them and us about how many objects there are in a room will look not only insuperable but also unintelligible unless the differences between their system and ours are brought into the light. Similarly, if we are to put the debate about how many Wittgensteins there are on a proper footing, it will be important to establish the criterion according to which we are making our count.
