I 83/84
Def equivalence/localization/logical space/Stalnaker: saying that i is equivalent to j is to say that the localization functions i and j represent the same possible world - Def intrinsic property: Region in logical space that is invariant with respect to this equivalence relation - contrast: conventional property.
I 85
logical space/Stalnaker: does not exist independently of the individuals who inhabit it, but is abstracted from the world as we find it.
I 127
Spatial/logical/Stalnaker: Solution/Stalnaker: is our intuitions: most of us have an actualistic conception of possible world and possible individuals, but they represent a possibilism regarding spatial localization - places north and south of us are just as real - we do not need surrogates for absent objects - even if there is no world-independent identity, there is still a localization-independent one.
