Deconstructing a topological sorites

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper I examine some difficulties with the argument presented as a topological sorites in Z. Weber and M. Colyvan, 'A topological sorites', Journal of Philosophy 107, 311-325. In particular, I suggest that the argument may be used to support the claim that sorites-type paradoxes cannot arise in a cohesive environment.
