A note to the reviewer: A very decent review of the book. As for Lieb's contribution: a pity the main body of the contribution has not been discussed,it presents it's own version of linguistic realism. As for definitions of ''abstract'' and ''concrete'': ''abstract'' is defined as ''non-concrete'' but there has been a change in the definition of ''concrete'' from Lieb (1992): ''concrete'' now means: belonging to SPECIFIC sorts on the zero-level, which are simply objects in space and time and events in space and time, and, possibly, mental states and events - that's all. So there is definitional clarity. It follows that any other sort on the zero-Level is abstract. A definition of ''abstract'' independently of ''concrete'' is not attempted.
