This chapter begins with a discussion of the liguisticization of properties. It then discusses tropes and universals, classification and composition, capacities and dispositions, forms of infinity, and the reciprocity of manifestations. It argues that disposition and manifestation are the basic categories by means of which cause and effect are to be explained. A manifestation of a dispositional state should be seen in depth as a change that might endure for less than a billionth of a millisecond — not long enough for observation, except indirectly as the observation of traces. Manifestations and dispositions are correlative. A manifestation is what it is only as from a relevantly deep enough and broad enough Disposition Base Array, and a disposition base array is what it is only as for kinds of alternative manifestation under alternative kinds of condition.

Keywords:   tropes, universals, capacities, dispositions, manifestations
