De los conjuntos de propiedades esenciales y contingentes aplicadas a individuos reales, potenciales, ficticios e ideales


  • Le Gall, Sylvain


The ontological commitment adopted in this essay considers the possibility of analysing individuals and their properties based on the primitive notion of set. Using this formal approach, the individual is reduced to a unitary set. The author opts for a constructivist strategy. Without addressing the ontological foundations of mathematical or material existentialism, constructivism seems the most convincing and attractive theory to address the essence of objects and concepts. The author concludes with a formal model of sets of essential and contingent properties and the different types of conceptualised individuals who are included in these sets, without the existence of ontological incompatibilities amongst them.
