[catalogued under 8. Modes of Existence / C. Powers and Dispositions / 2. Powers as Basic]

Full Idea

The view of properties I find most attractive is one in which they are natural clusters of, and exhausted by, powers (plus other connections to other properties).

Gist of Idea

Properties are just natural clusters of powers
