[Irish, fl. 2008, Student of David Lewis. At Pittsburgh, then at Oxford University.]

2008 There Are No Abstract Objects
1 p.34 Call 'nominalism' the denial of numbers, properties, relations and sets
4 p.47 Natural Class Nominalism says there are primitive classes of things resembling in one respect
4 p.53 Abstracta imply non-logical brute necessities, so only nominalists can deny such things
