Quick Reference

Term introduced by Goodman to describe works of art such as pieces of music or literary texts where there can be multiple copies, each of which is equally an instance of the work. The contrast is with those such as paintings where only one instance is the work, and copies would be either reproductions or forgeries. These are called autographic. See also type-token ambiguity.

Subjects: Philosophy.
