[catalogued under 9. Objects / B. Unity of Objects / 3. Unity Problems / d. Coincident objects]

Full Idea

I find it surprising that some philosophers accept 'coincident objects'. This notion clearly offends against commonsense 'naturalism' about the world, so it should be viewed as a last resort.

Gist of Idea

The idea of coincident objects is a last resort, as it is opposed to commonsense naturalism

A Reaction

I'm not quite clear why he invokes 'naturalism', but I pass on his intuition because it seems right to me.
