Lately I've been working on the classification of fruits into kinds, unexpectedly coming across one of the most fascinating chapters in metaphysics known to me. While I plan on writing about it more diffusely, I shall point out that fruits constitute a perfect case study for taking up the debate between Nominalists and Realists
, for pointing out the limitations of both the former
and the latter
, and most importantly for exploring new avenues
with respect to our conception of natural kinds. Stay tuned for more on this topic!
