Composition as Identity

OUP Oxford (2014)
Composition is the relation between a whole and its parts--the parts compose the whole; the whole is composed of the parts. But is a whole anything distinct from its collective parts? Could it be that a whole just is its parts? Twelve original articles argue for and against the controversial doctrine that composition is identity.
