@emelie the classic essentialist vs existentialist debate! Is it a fruit bowl only when it has fruit in it? Or does it have some unchanging essence of fruitbowlishness? If the latter then this is just a fruit bowl filled with a cat. But I’m an existentialist. I’m not even sure it’s a bowl. Or a cat. Maybe the cat doesn’t think of itself as a cat...
@emelie exactly! And who are we to tell this cat that he’s not a fruit Taxonomists have a lot to answer for.
