Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book contains four appendices that pertain to the notions of object, identity, and difference and things that are relevant to them and their interrelation. These notions are fundamental to our general conceptual scheme, to make and apprehend works of art, and to establish the limits of Abstraction. It also discusses haecceity of the law of identity and diversity of objects. The next appendix presents the Leibniz's law, the laws of identity and difference, and the identity of indiscernibles. The third appendix explains the distinction, discrimination, and distinguishability of Essentialist Abstraction. The fourth appendix focuses on the impossible objects that are essential ingredients of artistic complexes.

Keywords: artistic complexes; Essentialist Abstraction; haecceity; Leibniz's law
