ATTRIBUTION OF CONCEPTS AND PROBLEMS WITH ANACHRONISM
Preview not available

Abstract

Many long-standing debates about anachronistic concept-attributions derive from an essentialist understanding of concepts that is often difficult to sustain for metaphysical or epistemological reasons. The intentionalist alternative to essentialism elaborated in this article successfully clarifies and avoids many standard problems with anachronism.
