The one category ontologist may grant, of course, that there exists additional structure. 3 Or, she might grant that there is a kind of derivative ontological structure, such as a mereological structure where sums are constructed from simples. What matters is that none of this 2 3 I accept relationalism about spacetime, on broadly empirical grounds. See Sider (2012) for discussion of adding to one’s ideology instead of one’s ontology. . . 4 The appeal of a one category ontology is not that there is no structure in the world, but rather that there is no fundamental division between real natures in the world, and no new real natures are emergent in the world.
48 The distinction is best viewed as a matter of degree; and Lewis’ labels convey the force of the contrast. We can get at the contrast if we ﬁx on the various predicate terms in our language and ask which of them are to be correlated with universals. Every theory must set some limits here. There is, after all, the predicate term ‘does not exemplify itself ’; and if we have it express a universal, we ﬁnd ourselves confronted straightaway with the attribute version of Russell’s paradox. 49 Constituent theorists typically take some version of the Principle of Simplicity to constrain their characterization of the structure and constitution of familiar concrete particulars.
212b11–12. Armstrong (1989), Chapter 5, Section VIII. . proponents of immanent universals have typically endorsed the principle; but it is important to recognize that it is not mandatory that they do so. It is perfectly possible for a constituent ontologist to hold that there are or might be universals that are neither now nor, perhaps, ever instantiated. What distinguishes the Aristotelian from the Platonist is just the view that what it is for a basic ﬁrst order universal to be instantiated is for it to be immanent in or a constituent of some contingent particular; but one could hold that view while denying that the existence of any such universal hinges on its being immanent in some contingent particular.
