Avenues for Further Development

(p.204) 7 Conclusion
The Primacy of Metaphysics

Christopher Peacocke

Oxford University Press

The account of the relation between metaphysics and the theory of content suggests further investigation in four areas: the acquisition of concepts; the detailed accounting of what is involved in possession and acquisition in no-priority cases; the wider application, to other areas, of the principle that Individuation Precedes Representation; and the integration of a metaphysics-involving account of concept possession into the general task of integrating the epistemology and metaphysics of a domain. This concluding chapter looks at the connection between the claims of this book and further possible directions of investigation.

Keywords:   acquisition of concepts, no-priority cases, Individuation Precedes Representation, integration of epistemology and metaphysics
