The incompatibility of composition as identity, priority pluralism, and irreflexive grounding

Analytic Philosophy 52 (3):171-174 (2011)
Abstract
Some have it that wholes are, somehow, identical to their parts. This doctrine is as alluring as it is puzzling. But in this paper, I show that the doctrine is inconsistent with two widely accepted theses. Something has to go.
