  1. Characterising, instantial and attributive ties: or differ- eat mays in which particular and universal terms may collect each other in assertions. – 167
  2. A new criterion for subjects and predicates, based on the differences between particulars and universals1 as principles of collection of terms in assertions. The new criterion guarantees the traditional association between the two distinctions. – 171
