Question

    ”Explain how Schaffer’s understanding of the project of metaphysics in terms of grounding contrasts with, say, Quine’s ontological project. Explain this notion of ground by showing how Schaffer thinks it could be used to distinguish mere aggregates from unified wholes. Then apply the concept to another topic of your choosing. Is it coherent?”
