A Copy of a Book Is Not a Token of a Type
Socher, David
Journal of Aesthetic Education, v44 n3 p23-28 Fall 2010
Masons butter their bricks, gardeners deadhead their roses, and who am I to quibble over terms? However, philosophers routinely speak of "tokens" and "types", as if, so it seems to me, they are bringing a greater measure of precision to the table. Here I shall quibble. I shall try to lead the reader to realize that those philosophers are neither being especially precise nor are they following Charles S. Peirce, and that they are merely lending a false air of scientific respectability to the matter at hand. (Contains 9 notes.)
