(p.122) VII Identity in the Actual World
The Philosophy of Leibniz

Benson Mates (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The so‐called salva veritate criterion for the truth of identity propositions, namely that A is the same as B if and only if A can be substituted for B in any proposition salva veritate, is considered in all its ambiguities and other puzzling forms. In particular, Leibniz's explanation of why the criterion breaks down when applied on Fregean “oblique contexts” is discussed.

Keywords:   concept, Frege, identity, Leibniz, oblique contexts, sameness, substitutivity
