IMAGUIRE, G., Priority Nominalism (Springer Verlag, 2018, 171 pages.)



Nominalism, Problem of universals, Grounding.


The present work is a review of Imaguire's book Priority Nominalism. In the first part I present the fundamental idea of the book along general lines; successively, I report a resume of each
chapter and I present in more details the view of the author and the dialectic of his arguments. In the final part, I highlight some strong points of the book and I attempt a formulation of a possible difficulty arising from Imaguire's proposal.
