  • Almost identical, almost innocent 

    Hawley, Katherine Jane (2017-09-12) - Journal article
    In his 1991 book, Parts of Classes, David Lewis discusses the idea that composition is identity, alongside the idea that mereological overlap is a form of partial identity. But this notion of partial identity does nothing ...
