Similarity V 135f
Perception/Putnam: whether two are the same, is a question of concept formation - perception is not distorted physical reality and not an artificial version of the physical facts - habituation can cause doubt that the term "the same qualitative character" is well defined.
V 142ff
Natural kind/similarity/Putnam: similarity depends on the natural kind and the context.
