Theories of individuation: A reconsideration of bare particulars
Talbot School of Theology
The metaphysical problem of individuation requires an answer
to two different but intimately related questions: 1) How are we to characterize
individuality ontologically? To what ontological category or logical type
does individuality belong? 2) What sort of distinction is there between the
individuality and nature of an individual, e.g., a real distinction, a modal
distinction, a distinction of reason, or some other distinction My purpose
in this article is to clarify a bare particular account of individuation and
respond to objections that have been raised against bare particulars
