Жёсткие десигнаторы в теории абстрактных объектов Э. Залты

С. 182-197.

The article describes some of the fundamental features of Edward Zalta’s Theory of abstract objects in connection with the problem of possible worlds, as well as the use of names as rigid designators. The main feature of Zalta’s Theory is the separation of the two types of predication of properties: one for concrete objects and the other for abstract ones. This approach allowed us to avoid certain paradoxes. In the theory of abstract objects possible worlds considered as abstract objects that are associated with propositional properties. Such an approach is not without appeal, but has some syntactical defects, leading to circularity in the definition of modalities and even the definition of identity relation.
