Functions II 119
Function / Place / (s): No double function: a thing cannot at the same have the categorical property (as a function) of sharpness and the disp. property (as a function) of the ability to cut - ((s) at least no "double explanation" no "double yield"?) - Example: if the arrangement of the molecules of opium contitutes the cat. aspect of the binding of these atoms, it can not simultaneously have the cat. aspect of the soporific effect - there does not seem to enough categorical to supply all reactants with their disp. property.
