George Molnar

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the manifestation of powers. It distinguishes between token-independence and type-independence, in which powers can be independent of their manifestations. It explains independence and the different conditional analyses of powers, and cites three types of conditions: naïve, causal and reformed. The chapter treats anti-realism about manifesting powers and it also discusses Megaric actualism and the case against it.

Keywords:   manifestation of powers, independence, causal conditions, conditional analysis, reformed conditions, Megaric actualism
