Question

    ”Explain the concrete/abstract and particular/universal distinctions, as made by Campbell. Then, with this distinction in mind, explain what a trope is supposed to be. How do tropes differ from the more traditional (abstract) universals1 and (concrete) particulars? How does the trope theorist understand what it is for distinct objects to be of the very same kind? Explain at least one supposed advantage that tropes have over properties-as-universals2.”
