The application conditions represent just one (cluster of) concept(s) and compared to other concepts (!) it is rather clearly sketched.

Another example are the conditions for new concepts (and easy arguments) in chapter eight. – This decit of the book could be compensated for by a global reference to a thorough introduction to these issues, though a couple of chapters devoted solely to the linguistic- philosophical infrastructure might have served that purpose as well.
