The chapter then goes on to discuss how this book aims to overcome this problem. The chapter defines the idea of “concepts” as used in the book and explains the idea of “core concepts” and weighs up the arguments for and against “concepts”. The notion of “nonconcepts” is introduced and briefly explained.
