Abstract:Next the project develops a mereologized class theory satisfying the following criteria: the project does not take as primitive the operation which carries a member into its singleton, it offers some insight into the ways in which members enter into classes, and it is fruitful in that it allows us to develop a set theory adequate to meet the demands of most normal mathematics. The development avoids the set theoretic paradoxes, it respects our intuition that any thing whatsoever can be a member, and it has available to it a defense of the set theoretic axioms which is no weaker than the typical defenses of these axioms offered by either the iterative or the limitation of size conceptions of sets.
