The Fruit of Philosophers

By February 26, 2012

Follow me on:

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!
