Resemblance Nominalism: A Solution to the Problem of Universals

Clarendon Press (2002)

Authors
Abstract
Gonzalo Rodriguez-Pereyra offers a fresh philosophical account of properties. How is it that two different things (such as two red roses) can share the same property (redness)? According to resemblance nominalism, things have their properties in virtue of resembling other things. This unfashionable view is championed with clarity and rigor
