Structural Universals

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Structural universals are a kind of complex universal. They have been put to work in a variety of philosophical theories, but are plagued with problems concerning their compositional nature. In this article we will discuss the following questions: what are structural universals? Why believe in them? Can we give a consistent account of their compositional nature? What are the costs of doing so?
