Indicates very briefly a variety of further strategies, beginning with modifications and combinations of the three that were discussed in the preceding three chapters. The more exotic strategies are those based on so‐called substitutional quantifiers, or predicate‐functor logic, and on dialectical logic, which admits inconsistent objects and incomplete objects. Argues that these exotic strategies are philosophically problematic in a way the strategies considered earlier were not.

Keywords: dialectical logic; incomplete objects; inconsistent objects; predicate‐functor logic; substitutional quantifiers
