Real Objects

Classes and concepts may…be conceived as real objects…existing independently of our definitions and constructions. It seems to me that the assumption of such objects is quite as legitimate as the assumption of physical bodies, and there is quite as much reason to believe in their existence. -Kurt Gödel, Russell’s Mathematical Logic (p. 137), 1944.
