A Typology of Properties

Abstract:  I give a typology of properties (and conceptions of property).  The aim is to provide clarity concerning the relationships between various property-‘types’, such as the relationships between sparse and abundant properties, fundamental and non-fundamental properties, properties and natural kinds, and powers and dispositions.

Professor Alexander Bird (University of Cambridge)
