Microreductions with Identities
This chapter will conclude my detailed analysis of the conditions for uniform microreductions. In Section A I will discuss thing-identity connecting sentences. In Section B I will argue that the ACCS’s of Chapter 4 should be replaced by attribute-identities. Section C summarizes the conditions for uniform microreductions and includes a discussion of some further consequences of these conditions. In Section D I will consider some possible objections and problems concerned with the use of identities as connecting sentences. Finally, in Section E I will apply my conditions for microreductions to some questions about modifications of the theories and about trivial microreductions.
