Example text

Consider now any epistemic property - say, being such that it is reasonable to judge that there are many people in the room.

Then we could go on to say that a property is an attribute which could be exemplified: it is an attribute which is possibly such that there is something that exemplifies it. This would not reflect any distinction in the actual uses of the words, "attribute" and "property". But it would simplify our discussion of ontology. Such a distinction would make use of three undefined concepts, two of them metaphysical and one of them intentional. The two metaphysical concepts are that of exemplijying ("x exemplifies y") and that of de re necessity ("x is necessarily such that it is F").
