The concept of relation has a long and complicated history. One of the interests for the Greek philosophers lay in the number of ways in which a particular thing might be describe, and the establishment of a relation between one thing and another was one of these. A second interest lay in the difference between these relations and the things themselves. This was to culminate in the view that the things in themselves could not be known except through their relations. Debates similar to these continue into modern philosophy and include further investigations. Types of relation and whether relations exist only in the mind or the real world or both.
An understanding of types of relation is important to an understanding of relations. Many things including those between people, communities and the wider world. Most of these are complex relations but of the simpler, analytical relations out of which they are formed there are sometimes held to be three types, although opinion on the number may differ. The three types are (1) spatial relations, which include geometry and number, (2) relations of cause and effect, and (3) the classificatory relations of similarity and difference that underlie knowledge. Similar classifications have been suggest in the sciences, mathematics, and the arts.
An important distinction is between internal and external relations. A relation is internal if it is fully determined by the features of its relata. For example, an apple and a tomato stand in the internal relation of similarity to each other because they are both red. Some philosophers have inferred from this that internal relations do not have a proper ontological status since they can be reduced to intrinsic properties.
External relations, on the other hand, are not fixed by the features of their relata. For example, a book stands in an external relation to a table by lying on top of it. But this is not determine by the book’s or the table’s features like their color, their shape, etc. One problem associate with external relations is that they are difficult to locate. For example, the lying-on-top is located neither in the table nor in the apple. This has prompted some philosophers to deny that there are external relations. Properties do not face this problem since they are locate in their bearer.
