This chapter proposes Thesis C, which classifies the F itself together with the many Fs in a manner analogous to that of seeing the standard yard and the many yards of the world of the senses as all yards of the same basic type. Thesis C, then, gives us a univocal paradigm case. It is the doctrine whereby the Form and the particulars are univocally F things.

Keywords: standard yard; univocal paradigm; Thesis C; F thing
