Philosophers Index Abstract

    This paper explores the relation between a statue1 and the piece of bronze that constitutes it and argues that there are relational properties that the statue2 has essentially, but that the piece of bronze does not have essentially. Therefore, the statue3 is not identical to the piece of bronze. The paper defends this argument from various objections.
