|Determinates/ Determinables||I 19
Definition "determinate"/determinate/Millikan: determinate is a property relative to a "determinable" property under which both this property and a lot of other properties fall.
For example, red (together with its opposite green, yellow, etc.) is a determinate property relative to "colored". ((s) "colored": = determinable).
E.g. purple: is determinate relative to both red and also to colored.
(2) The fact that A and B have the properties p1, p2, p3, etc. in common can be explained by a natural law or laws in situ that satisfy condition (3) (see below).
