This chapter uses the theory of qualities and concepts to obtain solutions to a number of outstanding problems in classical modern philosophy, problems that have resisted solution to a large extent because they are typically thought of in terms of representationalism rather than realism. Specifically, the theory is applied to problems concerning the definitions of truth, necessity, and analyticity.

Keywords: truth; necessity; analyticity; modern philosophy
