Forms/Plato/Bigelow/Pargetter: his strategy is to postulate a single entity, along with a variety of relationships between individuals and that entity. ((s) Relation: participation, entity: form).

This is because the different masses do not overlap here.
PlatoVsVs: Problem: the new approach does not show what the objects have in common.
