My dissertation aims to develop and defend a theory of the natures of the identity and distinctness relations. This theory involves (1) specifying the special and indispensable role that these relations play in metaphysical theories, and (2) developing and defending a theory about what the reality underlying identity and distinctness facts is like (see "The Identity of Necessarily Indiscernibles").
