TL;DR: In this paper, Simons surveys and critiques previous theories, especially the standard extensional view, and proposes a new account that encompasses both temporal and modal considerations, showing that the formal theory of part and whole is essential to ontology.
Abstract: Although the relationship of part to whole is one of the most fundamental there is, this is the first full-length study of this key concept. Showing that mereology, or the formal theory of part and whole, is essential to ontology, Simons surveys and critiques previous theories--especially the standard extensional view--and proposes a new account that encompasses both temporal and modal considerations. Simons's revised theory not only allows him to offer fresh solutions to long-standing problems, but also has far-reaching consequences for our understanding of a host of classical philosophical concepts.

TL;DR: In this paper, a defense of intuitions in a naturalistic framework is presented, and a variety of ways of trying to legitimate them are considered, including arguments against intuitions and defenses of their evidential status.
Abstract: Summary Intuitions play a critical role in analytical philosophical activity. But do they qualify as genuine evidence for the sorts of conclusions philosophers seek? Skeptical arguments against intuitions are reviewed, and a variety of ways of trying to legitimate them are considered. A defense is off ered of their evidential status by showing how their evidential status can be embedded in a naturalistic framework.
