David A. I propose an analysis of the metaphysically important distinction between intrinsic and extrinsic properties, and, in the process, provide a neglected model for the analysis of recalcitrant distinctions generally.
An intrinsic property is a property that an object or a thing has of itself, independently of other things, including its context. An extrinsic or relational property is a property that depends on a thing's relationship with other things. For example, mass is an intrinsic property of any physical object , whereas weight is an extrinsic property that varies depending on the strength of the gravitational field in which the respective object is placed. The question of intrinsicality and extrinsicality in empirically observable objects is a significant field of study in ontology , the branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being. David Lewis offered a list of criteria that should condense the distinction between intrinsic and extrinsic properties numbers and italics added : .
I have some of my properties purely in virtue of the way I am. My mass is an example. I have other properties in virtue of the way I interact with the world. My weight is an example. The former are the intrinsic properties, the latter are the extrinsic properties. This seems to be an intuitive enough distinction to grasp, and hence the intuitive distinction has made its way into many discussions in ethics, philosophy of mind, metaphysics and even epistemology.

We have some of our properties purely in virtue of the way we are. Our mass is an example. We have other properties in virtue of the way we interact with the world. Our weight is an example. The former are the intrinsic properties, the latter are the extrinsic properties.
Properties of Matter — Part 2. One way to classify matter by properties is to use physical or chemical properties. But there is another way to look at properties: Does the property depend on how much matter you have? The answer determines whether you are working with an intrinsic or extrinsic property. Intrinsic AKA intensive properties are properties that are within the substance. These properties do not depend on the amount of material that you have.
Какой ключ. Стратмор снова вздохнул. - Тот, который тебе передал Танкадо. - Понятия не имею, о чем. - Лжец! - выкрикнула Сьюзан. - Я видела твою электронную почту. Хейл замер, потом повернул Сьюзан лицом к .
