|Property: what can be ascribed to an object in order to distinguish it from other objects. In philosophy, there is debate about whether properties exist or whether "bare particulars" exist. Expressions for properties are predicates. Not every predicate will refer to a property. See also quantification over properties, 2nd order logic, HOL, completeness._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Properties/some authors: surely not all properties are relational like "to be remote" - but could they not be time-relational at all, while ignoring this constant dependency? (Haslanger 1989:123f, Jackson 1994b,142f, van Inwagen 1990a, 116)._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
