Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Type/Token, philosophy: tokens are single occurrences of something classified by a type. The distinction goes back to Ch. S. Peirce (Peirce, Charles S. (1931-58), “Collected Papers of Charles Sanders Peirce”, Hartshorne and Weiss (eds.), Cambridge, MA Harvard University Press, Section 4.537). See also tokening, classification, categories, identity, order, partial identity, universalism, nominalism, conceptualism.
