The nature of 2, whether it is to be regarded as a real, or only a rational, or only an integer, or only a natural or cardinal, depends on context.
Note that when one describes the cardinality of a set as being 2, or that the result of a count is 2, then that 2 is a cardinal or a natural whereas a weight or a length of 2 will be a real. > > > > >> Since you like quoting the Grundlagen, try > > >> transcribing long detailed passages from > > >> section 9 > > > > > I have written read an written everything Cantor wrote.
