###### 4. Formal Logic / G. Formal Mereology / 1. Mereology
 13258 The 'aggregative' objections says mereology gets existence and location of objects wrong
###### 5. Theory of Logic / B. Logical Consequence / 1. Logical Consequence
 13288 Consequence is truth-preserving, either despite substitutions, or in all interpretations
###### 5. Theory of Logic / B. Logical Consequence / 4. Semantic Consequence |=
 14506 'Roses are red; therefore, roses are colored' seems truth-preserving, but not valid in a system
###### 6. Mathematics / B. Foundations for Mathematics / 7. Mathematical Structuralism / e. Structuralism critique
 14505 Some questions concern mathematical entities, rather than whole structures
###### 8. Modes of Existence / A. Relations / 3. Structural Relations
 13289 Structures have positions, constituent types and number, and some invariable parts
###### 8. Modes of Existence / B. Properties / 6. Categorical Properties
 14501 'Categorical' properties exist in the actual world, and 'hypothetical' properties in other worlds
###### 9. Objects / B. Unity of Objects / 1. Unifying an Object / a. Intrinsic unification
 14495 I aim to put the notion of structure or form back into the concepts of part, whole and object
 13264 If a whole is just a structure, a dinner party wouldn't need the guests to turn up
###### 9. Objects / B. Unity of Objects / 3. Unity Problems / c. Statue and clay
 14497 The clay is just a part of the statue (its matter); the rest consists of its form or structure
 13280 Statue and clay differ in modal and temporal properties, and in constitution
###### 9. Objects / C. Structure of Objects / 2. Hylomorphism / c. Form as causal
 14496 Structure or form are right at the centre of modern rigorous modes of enquiry
###### 9. Objects / C. Structure of Objects / 6. Constitution of an Object
 13279 There are at least six versions of constitution being identity
###### 9. Objects / C. Structure of Objects / 8. Parts of Objects / a. Parts of objects
 14498 For three-dimensionalist parthood must be a three-place relation, including times
 13283 The parts may be the same type as the whole, like a building made of buildings
###### 9. Objects / C. Structure of Objects / 8. Parts of Objects / c. Wholes from parts
 13266 Wholes in modern mereology are intended to replace sets, so they closely resemble them
 14500 Wholes are entities distinct from their parts, and have different properties
 13281 Wholes are not just their parts; a whole is an entity distinct from the proper parts
###### 26. Natural Theory / B. Natural Kinds / 1. Natural Kinds
 14504 The Kripke/Putnam approach to natural kind terms seems to give them excessive stability
###### 26. Natural Theory / B. Natural Kinds / 3. Knowing Kinds
 13285 Natural kinds support inductive inferences, from previous samples to the next one
###### 26. Natural Theory / B. Natural Kinds / 4. Source of Kinds
 13287 Concepts for species are either intrinsic structure, or relations like breeding or ancestry
###### 26. Natural Theory / B. Natural Kinds / 5. Reference to Natural Kinds
 13284 Should vernacular classifications ever be counted as natural kind terms?
###### 26. Natural Theory / D. Laws of Nature / 11. Against Laws of Nature
 13286 There are apparently no scientific laws concerning biological species
