Problem of Universals
- quote Should the properties an object has in common with other objects, such as color and shape, be considered to exist beyond those objects?
- quote Philosophers agree that human beings can talk and think about universals, but disagree on whether universals exist in reality beyond mere thought and speech.
- Seems potentially related to qualia and the hard problem of consciousness.
