On some putative graph-theoretic counterexamples to the Principle of the Identity of Indiscernibles

Synthese 187 (2):661-672 (2012)
Abstract
Recently, several authors have claimed to have found graph-theoretic counterexamples to the Principle of the Identity of Indiscernibles. In this paper, I argue that their counterexamples presuppose a certain view of what unlabeled graphs are, and that this view is optional at best.
