Concepts I 163
Monad/Strawson: simplest form: the concept of an x, that... - but not determined by the relative clause, but the concept of these things- e.g. the concept of a person who has killed a man: Universal, but no monad - because not a complete concept - Strawson: in the real world a complete description is completely meaningless.
I 164
Complete Concept/Leibniz/Strawson: classes can be formed from complete descriptions if the descriptions given by the relative clause contain in both cases identical, but differently arranged elements.
