4 The following paragraphs as well as section 3 below follow closely the exposition in laakko Hintikka and Gabriel Sandu: 1992, 'The Skeleton in Frege's Cupboard: The Standard versus Nonstandard Distinction', Journal of Philosophy 89, 290-315. 5 See 'Uber eine bisher noch nicht beniitzte Erweiterung des finiten Standpunktes', in Solomon Feferman et al. ), Kurt Godel: Collected Works, Vol. 2: Publications 1938-1974, Oxford University Press, New York, 1990, pp. 240-251.

This explanation presupposed that in the definition of a power set the sets presupposed there were arbitrary ones. Even without extensive documentation it is eminently clear that the conception of set which Cantor was trying to implement was the "standard" one, that is, the conception of an arbitrary set. )23 In other words, the early set theorists wanted to develop an approach such that in the models of set theory every extensionally possible class, Russell's "class in extension", is present. But even before set theorists were ready to face this task, they had 30 JAAKKO HINTIKKA a series of other problems in their hands.

The result is in fact much more like the definitory nonstandard interpretation than the standard one. One may even suspect philosophers of set theory of a confusion between two different senses of extensionality distinguished in section 1 above. Virtually the entire struggle to eliminate paradoxes from set theory by axiomatizing it can be viewed as an attempt to secure the existence of the extension of each concept - or at least as many concepts as possible. In the midst of that struggle, the reverse question as to whether there is a concept for each extension was largely forgotten.
