Quality and structure
Dasgupta
Perhaps the most well-known qualitativist view is the traditional
bundle theory, according to which the fundamental facts about the
world concern which qualitative properties are “compresent”. Thus if a
particular individual is red and round, the bundle theory says that
the fundamental fact about the situation is that redness and roundness
are compresent. Indeed the bundle theorist identifies individuals
with maximal sets of compresent properties.

Can We Do without Fundamental Individuals?
Jason Turner
book chapter
Since Newton on, science has only cared about the natural qualities
individuals have, and not which individuals have them. Individuals are
thus explanatorily idle, not earning their theoretical keep. If we
can help it, we shouldn’t think idlers — including individuals — are
fundamental.

Adam Greenfield on emerging technology: 'God forbid that anyone stopped to ask what harm this might do us' | The Independent
What the truly convinced blockchain ideologues aim to do is drain taxation and revenue away from the state, because – in the words of Grover Norquist – they want to shrink the state to the point that it can be drowned in a bathtub. This is their explicit ambition. Why shouldn’t we take them at their word?
