    Some suspicion of this may have induced William Kneale to give a different analysis of the eventBlue here now. He too wishes to show that the analysis of this event uncovers a situation “like that which would have resulted in the old theory if it could have been shown that we are acquainted only with universals.” But he significantly points out that to say even that “the elements of the event have instances” is to “suggest that it is not the same blue or the same now which is an element in different events.” There is some recognition here that to speak of instances at all is to concede that an instance of blue is inBlue here now and adifferent instance of it inBlue there then. “The Objects of Acquaintance,”Aristotelian Society Proceedings, 34:187ff (1934).Google Scholar
