Synthese 198 (Suppl 18):4595-4607 (2019)
  Copy   BIBTEX


In this paper, I present the thesis of Composition as Identity as I think it should be understood, and reply to some objections to it. My aim is not to argue that CAI is true, but to show how CAI can be true, and push the debate forward in the direction I think it must and should go in light of some new objections.
