Nelson Goodman on Object - Dictionary of Arguments

II 71
Possible objects: A real color or a real place do not need to occur at all times. Just as little a real man must live forever. (>real >reality).
II 72
Object: not time-place, but "total object" p + t, parts have no relationship to each other. Just as the parts of two cars on two sides of the street form no car. (Similar to Quine)
II 72f
The predicate "time-place" applies to many objects which consist of a place and a time, but not to all, for example, not to t+p.
II 73f
Possible objects/Goodman: real objects form a smaller subclass of the possible - "possible time-place"are no new real object but new predicate for old real sum object p + t - The predicate "time-place" does not apply to p + t. - Similar to "biggt" and "flexible": p + t = "time-place-able".
II 74
Continuation/predicates statement: "Time-place is red": two continuations: it continues the two predicates "red" and "time-place" on p + t.

The possible objects and predicates disappear. Predicates refer to reality, but have extensions that are related in a very specific way with the extensions of certain manifest predicates and are usually further.
