Supplement to Location and Mereology
Long descriptions for some figures in Location and Mereology
Figure 1 description
The diagram consistes of six regions each of which is labelled
- \(r_3\) is a dashed lined rectangular region. It is divided evenly by another dashed line into two more rectangular regions which are \(r_1\) on the left and \(r_2\) on the right.
- \(r_4\) is a dashed line triangular region overlapping part of rectangular region \(r_1\)
- \(r_5\) is a dashed line pentagonal region totally inside of rectangular region \(r_1\)
- \(r_6\) is a large dashed line rectangular region that totally encloses all of the above regions
The interior of rectangular region \(r_3\) is shaded pink (and there so are regions \(r_1\), \(r_2\), \(r_5\), and part of regions \(r_4\) and \(r_6\). The shaded pink area of \(r_1\) is object \(o_1\). The shaded pink area of \(r_2\) is object \(o_2\). The shaded pink area of \(r_3\) is object \(o_3\).
Figure 3 description
Above are three shaded, horizontally adjacent rectangles labelled, left to right: \(a\), \(b\), \(c\). Below are three dotted line adjacent rectangles labelled left to right: \(r_a\), \(r_b\), \(r_c\). Arrows point from each upper rectangle to the corresponding lower rectangle (e.g., shaded rectangle \(a\) to dotted line rectangle \(r_a\)). The upper three rectangles are collectively labelled \(o\). The lower rectangles \(r_b\) and \(r_c\) are collectively labelled \(r\). An arrow points from \(o\) to \(r\).
Figure 4 description
Similar to figure 3, except upper rectangle \(a\) is not there and upper rectangles \(b\) and \(c\) are collectively labelled \(o^*\). The three lower rectangles are collectively labelled \(r^*\). An arrow points from \(o^*\) to \(r^*\).
Figure 5 description
This figure has two subfigures (5a) and (5b). Both figures have an upper and lower tier.
Figure 5a consists in the upper tier of two shaded non-overlapping circles that collectively are labelled \(o_1\). On the lower tier are two dotted line non-overlapping circles labelled \(r_1\) and \(r_2\) respectively and collectively labelled \(r_3\). An arrow points from \(o_1\) to \(r_3\).
Figure 5b consistes in the upper tier of a single shaded circle labelled \(o_2\). On the lower tier are two dotted line non-overlapping circles labelled \(r_3\) and \(r_4\) respectively. Two arrows go from \(o_2\), one to \(r_3\) and one to \(r_4\).
Figure 6 description
This is a complex diagram in a two by two table. Each of the body cells in the table has a caption and a diagram.
Locational Perdurance | Locational Endurance | |
---|---|---|
Mereological Perdurance | Cell 1: caption is “A singly located persisting thing with instantaneous temporal parts” | Cell 2: caption is “A multilocated persisting thing with instantaneous temporal parts” |
Mereological endurance | Cell 3: caption is “A singly located persisting thing without temporal parts” | Cell 4: caption is “A multilocated persisting thing without temporal parts” |
Figure 7 description
Two rows of three rectangles each. On the upper row the rectangles are shaded and labeled \(\text{Brick}_1\), \(\text{Brick}_2\), \(\text{Brick}_3\); all three are collectively labeled “Wall”. The lower row rectangles have dotted borders and labeled \(r_1\), \(r_2\), \(r_3\); all three are collectively labeled \(r_w\). An arrow goes from each rectangle in the upper row to the corresponding rectangle in the lower row.
