Abstract

Paul Williams critiques Śāntideva’s argument, claiming it rests on a category mistake. I suggest that if Williams’ critique were sound, then the debate about composition as identity, in recent analytic metaphysics, would also be nonsensical. My argument is that Williams’ objection does not make sense when dealing with absolutely general concepts such as the concepts of identity and parthood.
