What is the Orangeness in an Orange?How do you miraculously, unhesitatingly, repeatedly manage to identify an Orange.
What is common between a sliced and a peeled Orange? A ripe and a rotten Orange? A nibbled Orange and a fresh one?
A picture of an Orange, the sound ‘Orange Juice’, the taste of Orange pop, the smell of Orange peel, the touch of Orange pip, the letters ‘O R A N G E’, on a page.
Orangeness is an idea, a concept.
‘I can’t define Orangeness, Professor, but I sure know how to pick one’.
