Absolute Identity and Absolute Generality

In Gabriel Uzquiano & Agustin Rayo (eds.), Absolute Generality. OUP 369--89 (2007)
In conversations between native speakers, words such as ‘same’ and ‘identical’ do not usually cause much difficulty. We take it for granted that others use them with the same sense as we do. If it is unclear whether numerical or qualitative identity is intended, a brief gloss such as ‘one thing not two’ for the former or ‘exactly alike’ for the latter removes the unclarity. In this paper, numerical identity is intended. A particularly conscientious and logically aware speaker might explain what ‘identical’ means in her.
