THUNK – 134. The Problem of Universals

-Links for the Curious-

 

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy is invaluable for getting a broad understanding of this topic quickly. Some key pages I found helpful:

Metaphysics Overview – plato.stanford.edu/entries/metaphysics/
Platonism in Metaphysics – plato.stanford.edu/entries/platonism/

Abstract Objects – plato.stanford.edu/entries/abstract-objects/

Nominalism in Metaphysics – plato.stanford.edu/entries/nominalism-metaphysics/

Tropes – plato.stanford.edu/entries/tropes/

 

The n-tuple representation of tropes was from “Tropes: Properties, Objects, & Mental Causation” by Douglas Ehring – http://goo.gl/zzYJpp
