Haecceitism is the perspective implied by the belief that entities can have haecceity. James Ladyman characterizes haecceitism as "the claim that worlds can differ solo numero, that worlds can differ de re whilst not differing de dicto, sometimes said, that worlds can differ solely by the permutation of individuals."[1]
