Abstract / Bemerkung
Standard Kripke-Putnam semantics is widely taken to entail that theoretical identifications like Brontosauruses are Apatosauruses' or Gold is Au-79' are necessary, if true. I offer a new diagnosis as to why this modal consequence ensues. Central to my diagnosis is the concept of a paradigm term. I argue that modal and epistemic peculiarities that are commonly considered as distinctive of natural kind expressions are in fact traits that are shared by paradigm terms in general. Philosophical semantics should broaden its focus from natural kind expressions to paradigm terms.
