Unger s answer to the problem of vagueness  as exemplified by the  disappearing chair problem (atom-wise annihilation of the chair & just when does it cease to be?) is that there never were any chairs, just our concept of a chair and atoms arranged chair-wise. We sit on the atoms, not on the concept, but we describe the atom-heap as a chair. But this concept is vague, or there is a family resemblance, so sometimes it s not clear whether it applies or not. The big question is whether <a name="1"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_0/Notes_27.htm">natural kind</A><SUP>2</SUP> objects exist independently of our conceptual schemes. Certainly they do as atom-heaps, unclear whether they do as answers to our concepts. So, various atom-heaps carry on existing, but whether our concepts carry on applying is vague. </li><li>Others (<a name="17"></a><A HREF = "../../Authors/V/Author_Van Inwagen (Peter).htm">Peter Van Inwagen</A><a name="2"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_7/Notes_737.htm">?</A><SUP>3</SUP>) take the view that only mereological simples and organisms exist, which seems to be a similar view. </li><li>There seems to be something special about natural-kind concepts, the persistence of whose exemplars (unlike those of artefact-concepts) don t in any sense seem to depend on us and our concepts. Is <a name="3"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_0/Notes_9.htm">PERSON</A><SUP>4</SUP> a natural kind concept? If it isn t, then are we simply left with rather inconsequential <a name="4"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_0/Notes_99.htm">semantic</A><SUP>5</SUP> arguments? </li><li>Are the arguments above really saying that artefacts don t exist?

I need to press Baker here. Are all her analogies truly analogous? Given evolution, even species-concepts (paradigms for natural kind concepts) are mobile rather than being eternally fixed.
