presents:
“Kant's Conception of Number: A Summing Up”

Abstract:  We can arrive at a better understanding of Kant's philosophy of arithmetic
by first determining what his conception of number is.  Is it fundamentally
cardinal, ordinal, or something else? I argue that Kant's sensitivity to the
requirements of number representation lead him to include both cardinal and
ordinal elements in his conception of number.
