AGAINST SENSE-DATA AS STRUCTURED UNIVERSALS (pages 359-363)

Landon D. C. ELKIND

ABSTRACT: I critically discuss a new proposal for a metaphysics of sense-data. This proposal is due to Peter Forrest. Forrest argues that, if we accept Platonism about universals, sense-data are best understood as structured universals–in particular, as structured universals with temporal and spatial properties as components. Against this proposal, I argue sense-data as structured universals are not universals at all.
