Artificial things of distinct Species.       §41. I must be excused here, if I think, artificial Things are of
distinct Species, as well as natural: Since I find they are as plainly and
orderly ranked into sorts, by different abstract Ideas, with general
names annexed to them, as distinct one from another as those of
natural Substances. For why should we not think a Watch, and
Pistol, as distinct Species one from another, as a Horse, and a Dog,
they being expressed in our Minds by distinct Ideas, and to others,
by distinct Appellations?
Locke Hum III, 6, §41, p. 465
