An Analysis of Resemblance

Excerpt

There are two main strains of effort in the present essay. One of these is concerned to present what the essay is not about. It is not about any sense of resemblance in which that term is used by thinkers generally and widely called Hegelian Idealists. Several chapters have been devoted to bringing out that point.

The other main aim of this essay is to advance an analysis of four senses of resemblance. Two of these senses would seem to be radical -- in the etymological sense of the term. The remaining two senses are derivative.

The concluding pages of this essay advance some considerations in the matter of universals and taxonomy.
