Relationism I 82f
Relationism / relationalism / Stalnaker: to represent him in terms of the logical space, it must be assumed that the logical space itself is partially conventional - I 84 that is, we must assume that the localization function sometimes only conventionally differs and therefore actually represents the same possible world. - it is not conventional that the origin of the coordinate system can be chosen freely - this is true for each c.s. - it would be true even if an absolute theory of space were true.
