Gonzalo Rodriguez-Pereyra "Resemblance Nominalism: A Solution to the Problem of Universals"
Oxford University Press, USA | 2002-08-01 | ISBN: 0199243778 | 245 pages | PDF | 1.22 MB
Gonzalo Rodriguez-Pereyra offers a fresh philosophical account of properties. How is it that two different things (such as two red roses) can share the same property (redness)? According to resemblance nominalism, things have their properties in virtue of resembling other things. This unfashionable view is championed with clarity and rigor.
Finding a good philosophical problem to work on is relatively easy, but clearly stating and analyzing a problem, once found, is difficult. This book does the latter with a clarity often lacking in other books on nominalism, and with a minimum of complicted logical apparatus. Although I am still not thoroughly convinced that resemblance nominalism will work, I think I can understand and appreciate it much better after having read the book. There is also useful discussion on the notion of truthmakers and Goodman's problems for nominalism.
