Examples

  • Both MOTne and MOTdc could perhaps benefit from a clarification of their basic distinctions, namely the nuclear-extranuclear distinction and the dual copula distinction, respectively.

    Nonexistent Objects

  • “The existent golden mountain exemplifies nuclear existence” and “The existent golden mountain does not exist” (in the proper, extranuclear sense).

    Nonexistent Objects

  • To mention some of them, Priest does not give a principled characterization of which properties are existence-entailing and which are not (which looks quite similar to the problem with the nuclear-extranuclear distinction which Priest points out in the above quotation).

    Nonexistent Objects

  • This does not rule out that the object blue may have additional extranuclear properties.

    Nonexistent Objects

  • Terence Parsons distinguishes five categories of “extranuclear predicates” (i.e., predicates that stand for extranuclear properties): ontological

    Nonexistent Objects

  • If the extranuclear property of existence has a watered-down nuclear counterpart, the following answer to Russell's objection is available: “The existent golden mountain exists” is ambiguous.

    Nonexistent Objects

  • Existence is an extranuclear property, but only nuclear properties can be constitutive properties of an object.

    Nonexistent Objects

    Nonexistent Objects

  • Priest rejects both the nuclear-extranuclear strategy and the dual copula strategy.

    Nonexistent Objects
