Abstraction/Lyons/Gärdenfors: Lyons (1977, pp. 443-445) distinguishes three fundamental "orders".
1. Physical Objects
2. Events, processes, states
3. Proposition, schemata, ("outside of space and time").
Identity/Lyons: this has important consequences: one can say, for example, that the same moose was in the garden yesterday - but not: e.g. the same storm destroyed the garden again today._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
