Platonism I 14
Platonism/Boer: (Boer pro) considers the realm of the actual properties and relations as a whole, i.e. we assume that any property or relation that exists, exists necessarily. (Quantity/(s) contains all elements necessarily).
N.B.: from this follows -given principle E! - that the indistinguishability of identity also applies to properties and relations. (See below chapter 4: but we define their identity differently).
"Only possible"/property/relation/Boer: thus we are determined on the thesis that there are no "merely possible" properties or relations, but there could be merely possible individuals.
