Abstract

CICCARELLI, VINCENZO. Book Review: Imaguire, G. Priority Nominalism (Springer Verlag, 2018, 171 pages.). Manuscrito [online]. 2019, vol.42, n.2, pp.121-137.  Epub Apr 01, 2019. ISSN 2317-630X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0100-6045.2019.v42n1.vv.

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.

Keywords : Nominalism; Problem of Universals; Grounding.
