The world is a world of objects. Objects are various ways; these ways are their properties. A substance–property conception of this sort differs from a conception according to which objects are bundles of properties. Might every object have proper parts that are themselves objects? Or are some objects simple? A tentative argument for simple objects is advanced.

Keywords:   bundle, composition, dependence, J. Locke, C. B. Martin, object, part, property, simple, substrata, whole
