Abstract:

Peter van Inwagen’s book Material Beings is centered on the special composition question: the question of when some simples constitute a complex object. Van Inwagen’s answer to this question is that simples only constitute a complex object when they constitute an organism. I argue that van Inwagen’s reasoning in favor of this conclusion is unconvincing, and also that the significance of the special composition question itself is doubtful.
