several motivations. On this front, Forbes remarks as follows: Consider the supposition that things could have been exactly as they are except that the steel tower in Paris opposite the Palais de Chaillot is different from the one actually there. (On anti-essentialism and extreme haecceitism, see Heller (2005 Stalnaker (1979 and Lewis (1986). Foundations of Measurement (Vols I-III) Lewis, essays on reflection on placement David (1986). We turn to the analogies.
In contrast, Diekemper (2009) and Cowling (2015) endorse primitivism about the distinction between qualitative and non-qualitative properties, taking it instead as irreducible or metaphysically fundamental. For example, according to origin essentialism, biological individuals have their biological origins essentially. Bigelow, John, Brian Ellis and Robert Pargetter (1988). On other ersatzist views, according to which possible worlds have distinctive qualitative characters even while they represent maximal possibilities that differ haecceitistically, PII will not rule out a commitment to haecceitism. Bush have his actual biological originsin this case, Barbara and George Bushin any possible world in which it exists. Since haecceitism presupposes that there are maximal possibilities that differ solely regarding the identity of individuals, generalism thereby rules out haecceitism. Here, inclusion is taken as a neutral bit of terminology.) In contrast, non-maximal possibilities like the possibility that Obama is human are less than total ways things could have been. Below is an attempt at a bibliography for the Metaphysics of Quantity. According to Strawson subject expressions are 'complete' in that they pick out 'empirical facts' and thereby enable us to identify particulars. (P4) If P2 is true, it is possible that you occupy a world that satisfies (Q) and that you are not eventually annihilated.
