    • ...Kim (1973) analyzes events as property exemplifications by objects at times, which is identical to Mellor’s account of facts (Mellor 1991, pp. 203–204)...

    Michael Baumgartner. Causal Slingshots

    • ...Kim sets forth his model of events in a number of papers (Kim 1969, 1973, 1976)...
    • ...Since these three parts constitute or make up an event, Kim calls these the constitutive object, constitutive property and constitutive time of a given event (Kim 1973, p. 9)...
    • ...Kim thinks that his model can account for the requirement that causation involves constant conjunction (Kim 1973, p. 12)...
    • ...Finally, Jaegwon Kim argues that the property exemplification model provides a “structural isomorphism” (Kim 1973, p. 8) between events and statements...
    • ...sentence ‘b stands between a and c at t’” (Kim, 1973, p. 9). In the same way that Kim uses C to describe c, and E to describe e, he uses ‘x has p at t’ to describe the event of object x having p at t. There is an isomorphism between the explanations C and the cause c, or between the statement ‘x has p at t’ and the event of x having p at t. If we used an alternate description, we would no longer have this isomorphism...
