Single Idea 16018

[catalogued under 9. Objects / F. Identity among Objects / 8. Leibniz's Law]

Full Idea

Leibniz's Law (the indiscernibility of identicals) appears to be crucial to our understanding of identity, and, more particularly, to our understanding of distinctness.

Gist of Idea

Indiscernibility is basic to our understanding of identity and distinctness

A Reaction

True, but indiscernibility concerns the epistemology, and identity concerns the ontology.
