Things and Properties

Chapter 8 of Roger Scruton’s Modern Philosophy.

First thoughts

Found myself tending towards the nominalist view. I don’t think I’d have anything against spending some time looking into this whole thing. What makes it of more interest is Scruton’s comment of nominalism in the wrong hands giving rise to works like Foucault, deconstruction and feminism. Goodman’s work sounds interesting, but the short extract I read kind of put me off.
