Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Determinates/Determinables: Determinables are expressions for something that allows further specifications due to language usage. E.g. the form, color, etc., are determinables, which are determined further by determinates such as "elongated", "light green," and so on. The term was introduced by W.E. Johnson (Johnson, W.E., 1921, Logic (Part 1), Cambridge). See also specification, determinateness, individuation, identification, ontology.
