Dr. Vallicella,

I know of Geach's work on relative identity. But did he ever himself apply it to the doctrine of the Trinity?

I'm still not sure the relative identity response belongs in #4. The strategy in #4 (as well as in the others) still presupposes the standard logic of identity, which is eschewed by relative identity.

Oh oh my third point was a (bad) joke! It trades on a pun between "apparent" and "a parent". Not all of us can make it into Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar!


I think he does somewhere. A quick leaf-through of *Logic Matters* and "God and the Soul,* however, did not turn up anything on the Trinity. I would guess that Geach came to his rel. identity doctrine precisely because he was trying to make sense of the Trinity.

In any case, I'm pretty sure A. P. Martinich's article antedates PvI, but I'd have to check to be sure.

I missed your pun. Thought it was a typo. So you saw the reference to me in the Plato and Platypus book?

I am not commenting on the post in question but, for some reason, I couldn't find your email address and I wanted you to respond to a defense of abortion by a philosopher. It's not all the long but interesting and you might want to make use of it as an illustration of a liberal argument for abortion: http://www.assassinationscience.com/abort.html

Oh no! Uncle Fetzer, the 9/11 'truther'! I'll take a look at it. Thanks.
