English term or phrase:universes of discourse
While the method of negation of certain a priori axioms and the subsequent construction of more and more general universes of discourse have occasionally been used in other natural sciences, they have nowhere achieved the degree of formalization and discipline that they have in mathematics.
Explanation: Имеется явная отсылка к термину "domain of discourse", что является синонимом оборота "universe oа discourse":
"In the formal sciences, the domain of discourse, also called the universe of discourse (or simply universe), is the set of entities over which certain variables of interest in some formal treatment may range. The domain of discourse is usually identified in the preliminaries, so that there is no need in the further treatment to specify each time the range of the relevant variables."
