The Short Course on Nominalism

The guy manages to put it into a very short essay and along the way supports the "Shakespeare Was Catholic" gang.

There was a pretty serious philosophical problem driving nominalism, which isn't easy to dismiss. I wrote a bit about it here.

It's a difficult question. I think I believe that the nominalists are right, but only about certain kinds of individuals -- that 'individuality is an emergent property,' to say it in the technical terms. We see it begin to emerge at certain levels of organization.
