Question

    ”Explain the sense in which Armstrong’s theory of properties is both scientific and realistic (i.e., his Scientific Realism). Explain why his conception of properties rules out both disjunctive and negative universals1. Also explain why he favors an ontology that rejects uninstantiated properties and a “Platonic Heaven”.”
