Abstract

RESUMEN Se examina una de las maneras más naturales e intuitivas de entender las nociones de entidad fundamental y dependencia ontológica. Se argumenta que quienes adoptan estas nociones enfrentan serios problemas y se recomienda abandonarlas, lo que no quiere decir que no haya otra forma plausible de entender estos conceptos. ABSTRACT The paper examines one of the most natural and intuitive ways of understanding the notions of fundamental entity and ontological dependence, It argues that those who adopt these notions face serious problems and should abandon them; however, this does not mean that there is no other plausible way of understanding these concepts.
