...; and they are arranged like points in a quasi-geometric logical space. In the second stage, the author carries out the task of showing how ordinary truths about things and qualities can be reduced to fundamental truths about facts.

Now, Chirimuuta's mind-world interactions take up time, but do they take up space? If not, they cannot be the bearers...

... that specifies the hidden qualitative profile of region R. The idea is that this proposition is unknowable—perhaps even ungraspable. 13 But the proposal is not to the point. For it is no part of the Newtonian view of space that the regions have these hidden qualities. And yet we are trying to make sense...

... they can be mathematically composed into a longer line. This worry is reinforced by the fact that Kant’s discussion in the Amphiboly refers to parts of space that are identical in both quality and quan- tity. Here it must be said that although the Amphiboly has important implica- tions for mathematical...
