Abstract

Brian McLaughlin has objected to Sydney Shoemaker's subset account of realization, posing what I call the problem of property entailment. Recently, Shoemaker has revised his subset account in response to McLaughlin's objection. In this paper I argue that Shoemaker's revised view fails to solve the problem of property entailment, and in fact makes the problem worse. I then put forward my own solution to the problem.
