Single Idea 17293

[catalogued under 7. Existence / D. Theories of Reality / 7. Facts / b. Types of fact]

Full Idea

The 'worldly' view of facts says they are obtaining states of affairs, individuated by their constituents and their combination. On the 'conceptual' view, facts will differ if they pick out an object or property via different concepts.

Gist of Idea

Worldly facts are obtaining states of affairs, with constituents; conceptual facts also depend on concepts

A Reaction

Might it be that conceptual differences between facts are supervenient on worldly differences (with the worldly facts in charge)?
