OSU philosophy PhD candidate Evan Woods has published a new paper “Many, but One” on the problem of the many, in Synthese.

Congratulations Evan!

Here is the abstract:

“Many, but One”

The problem of the many threatens to show that, in general, there are far more ordinary objects than you might have thought. I present and motivate a solution to this problem using many-one identity. According to this solution, the many things that seem to have what it takes to be, say, a cat, are collectively identical to that single cat.
