On recognizing an object with a partition

Chris Fields


Smith and Brogaard (‘A unified theory of truth and reference’ Logique et Analyse 43 (2000) 49–93) proposed a resolution of the problem of referential ambiguity based on the use of mereotopological partitions. It is shown that this proposed resolution is circular if viewed ontologically and intractable if viewed epistemologically.
