However it is clearthat roundness1is an instanceof roundnesscannot be the truth that roundness1standsin the similarity relation to someotherinstance,for the 1st truth could receive evenif there have been no different instanceto which roundness1is related. suppose that nearMt 5t Helenatherelies a pieceof lava which hasa very atypical and complex form. we don't have a reputation in English for this sort of shape;nor doesany different language. So we will name it 'alpha'. it will possibly be the casethat nowhereelse has there ever existednor will there ever exist a physique with the shapealpha. yet even then it might be precise that the example alpha1is an instanceof alpha, that's, of that shaperatherthan the other. in addition, the query arises of even if the relation of similarity itself is common or no longer. whether it is common, then the view below discussiondoes now not succeed,for it in basic terms replaces one common entity, the common roundness, via one other universalentity, the similarity relation. Thereare then, in any case, denizensof the area of being within the type of family members. No, a nominalist needs to continue that there's no such factor because the universalrelation, yet basically a numberof its instances,51, fifty two, and so forth. which means among roundness1and roundness2, 106 Husserl'sdistinction betweenessencesand their cases betweenthese twoinstances,there holds an instance5t , whereas betweenroundness3and roundness4,these diverse instances,there holds a distinct example, say fifty two. however it is, after all, a undeniable fact that 5t and fifty two are either instancesof similarity ratherthan instancesof the father-of relation. And the query needs to be answeredof how this truth can receive with no there beinga universalsimilarity, of which 5t and fifty two are situations. As you'll find, the assumptionthat there are instancesof this relation, yet no universalrelation, hasmerelyraisedour unique problemanew;this time for fifty one and52 ratherthanfor roundnesst and roundness2'We nonetheless haveno answerto the questionof easy methods to assessthe proven fact that an instanceis an instanceof one sort instead of one other. Nominalism, we accept as true with Husserl, doesn't get off the floor. Thereare universals. yet are there additionally cases? i don't imagine so. contemplate back the 2 billiard balls, Max and Moritz, and comparethem with the squarecracker, Graham. There are those 3 person issues. They belong to the class of specific due to the fact that they're spatio-temporalentities. What abouttheir shapes? Max is around, and so is Moritz; whereas Grahamis sq.. the valuables roundnessand the valuables squareness, I publish, are universals. Furthermore,Max and Moritz exemplify one and the sameshape,they either exemplify roundness. Graham exemplifies a distinct form. yet different sq. issues exemplify a similar form as Graham does, particularly, squareness. In each one case, many particularsexemplify the sameuniversal. Our assayof the placement therefore encounters purely 3 varieties of factor: the 3 details, common houses, and the common nexus of exemplification which connectsparticularswith universalproperties.
