Philosophers Index Abstract

    Propositionalists attempt to solve the problem of temporary intrinsics1 by saying that what it is for a persisting object to have an intrinsic property at a time is for a certain proposition to be true at that time. In "Tensing the Copula," David Lewis argues that this view fails. I argue that Lewis's argument fails.
