Abstract: It is commonly held that Bradley’s regress has a solution within a tropeontology. This seems to happen when a bundle is understood as constituted by non-transferable tropes. It also seems to happen when a bundle is understood as constituted by transferable tropes related by a relational trope of compresence whose existence specifically depends on those relata. In this article I demonstrate that these proposals fail in addressing the essential question that underlies the regress, incurring in a question-begging response already anticipated by Bradley.
Keywords: objects, properties, relations, identity, compresence
