universals as modes of necessity.morality is a kind of modes of necessity-not the normal type of F=ma. But "ought"





The point is this related to Maimonides. To see universals as modes of necessity hails back to Aristotle. It is a tantalizing prospect to think if there is a Rambam connection with this idea of modes of necessity. It is known the Rambam was neo Platonic leaning towards Aristotle --but not completely.
