9. Objects / B. Unity of Objects / 3. Unity Problems / c. Statue and clay
Clay is intrinsically and atomically the same as statue (and that lacks 'modal properties')
The clay is not a statue - it borrows that property from the statue it constitutes
9. Objects / B. Unity of Objects / 3. Unity Problems / d. Coincident objects
Is it possible for two things that are identical to become two separate things?
9. Objects / C. Structure of Objects / 6. Constitution of an Object
Statues essentially have relational properties lacked by lumps
Constitution is not identity, as consideration of essential predicates shows
The constitution view gives a unified account of the relation of persons/bodies, statues/bronze etc
