John Stuart Mill on Attributes - Dictionary of Arguments
Attribute/Mill: E.g. "whitness", "age": these are names of attributes - "attribute" itself is a generic name of many attributes.
Names/Mill: names always include some attribute in itself, but they are not the name of this attribute! The attribute itself has its own, abstract name (singular term), for example, "The Whiteness"._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
