Resumen

LOPEZ DE SA, Dan. The Chief Supreme Court Justice: A Metaphysical Puzzle?. Crítica (Méx., D.F.) [online]. 2007, vol.39, n.115, pp.61-68. ISSN 0011-1503.

What are things like the Supreme Court? Gabriel Uzquiano has defended that they are groups, entities which are somehow composed of members (at certain times) but which, unlike sets (or pluralities), allow for fluctuation in membership. The main alternative holds that 'the Supreme Court' refers (at any time) to the set (or plurality) of their members (at the time). Uzquiano motivates his view by posing a metaphysical puzzle for this reductive alternative. I argue that a parallel reasoning would also find a corresponding "puzzle" in the case of singular terms like 'The Chief Supreme Court Justice'.

Palabras llave : groups; constitution; set; plurality; reference.
