Identification has for lengthy been an enormous thought in philosophy and common sense. Plato in his Sophist places comparable between these fonns which "run via" all others.

To avoid this consequence, we can modify this version of the MAL so that it is an analysis of nomological necessity rather than lawhood. g. logical contingency) for something to count as a law. Neither modification would affect the argument of this paper. 7 Thus, we have an explanation of LCR that rests on two principles: MAL and MCR. It is natural to ask what explains these principles. MAL is a putative analysis of one property in terms of another; if true, it is plausibly explanatorily basic.
But this, McKitrick highlights, is a regress in the making. This solution can also be supplemented with the suggestion that each of these constantly manifesting ‘triggering’ powers are typically one amongst many other triggering powers, all of which must work in conjunction in order to give rise to the final manifestation. After considering some problems facing these proposals, another solution that McKitrick considers involves dropping the assumption that manifestations are always the manifestation of a single power only.
When somebody carries out this method as a measurement, they see to it that C obtains, or else they somehow check and make sure that C obtains, and then they check the value of P and read off the value of Q from it. What it takes for the method to be reliable is for a condition of this form to be true: R Whenever condition C obtains, K(P, Q) where K is some sort of positive correlation relation—it might simply be equality, or it might be some kind of objective probabilistic correlation. If the condition R obtains, then the method of seeing to it that C, or making sure that C, and then reading off the value of Q from that of P will be de facto reliable.
