It might be wondered why the present account of how the domain is to be extended is not subject to a form of the objection that we previously posed against the restrictionist account. For what guarantees that we will obtain the desired extension? What is to prevent the new object from containing members besides those in the range of y? relevant sense of . Also, there would appear to be something viciously circular about specifying an interpretation in this way, since the application of within such conditions must be understood by reference to the very interpretations it is being used to specify.

For what guarantee will we have that our opponent would have regarded it as absolutely unrestricted? Clearly, what is required is a generalization of the argument. It should not be directed at this or that interpretation of the quantifier but at any interpretation whatever. Now normally there would be no difficulty in generalizing an argument of this sort. We have a particular instance of the argument; and, since nothing special is assumed about the instance, we may generalize the reasoning to an arbitrary instance and thereby infer that the conclusion generally holds.
