Part/whole seems definable in terms of intrinsicness; x is part of y if intrinsic changes in x bring with them intrinsic changes in y. Is intrinsicness also definable in terms of part/whole? This chapter argues it is. A property is intrinsic if inhabitants of w can't gain or lose it by switching to a world w+ with w as a part.

Keywords:   properties, possible worlds, mereology, part/whole, intrinsic, extrinsic, material constitution, composition
