|Two Solutions To Chisholm's Paradox|
|Paper - Abstract|
Philosophers Index Abstract
Chisholm's paradox is that one plausible modal1 principle implies that certain changes in an artifact yield a different artifact, but another equally plausible principle says the changes preserve identity. Such paradoxes may be assimilated to classical sorites2 paradoxes, and a resolution transported from the classical to the modal3 case by introducing either a many-valued accessibility relation or a many-valued counterpart relation. The paper argues against the former solution, and for the latter.
From "Noonan (Harold), Ed. - Identity".
