SEP “Mohist Canons” Update

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy has published an updated version of my article on later Mohist thought.

This update presents major revisions to the sections on distinguishing similarities and differences, on the Mohist logical concept of "paralleling," and on the Mohists' critical evaluation of methods of argument. This version includes a clarification and defense of the claim that the later Mohists present a brand of realism about kinds.
