Nelson Goodman on Classes - Dictionary of Arguments
Classes/Goodman: when are two objects essentially of the same kind? The fact that they both belong to some class is not enough. Because: any pair of objects belongs to some kind of class.
And that both should belong exactly to the same class would be too much to ask for, because two objects never belong to exactly the same classes.
Classification includes preference._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
