Author’s Abstract

    Argle claimed that holes supervene1 on their material hosts, and that every truth about holes boils down to a truth about perforated things. This may well be right, assuming holes are perforations. But we still need an explicit theory of holes to do justice to the ordinary way of counting holes – or so says Cargle.
