Why Believe in Demonstrative Concepts?

Consciousness and Cognition 21 (2):636-638 (2011)
Abstract
I examine two arguments for the existence of demonstrative concepts—one due to Chuard (2006) and another due to Brewer (1999). I point out some important difficulties in each. I hope to show that much more work must be done to legitimize positing demonstrative concepts.
