One might take the modern reemergence of the hole argument in GTR [Earman and Norton, 1987] as evidence of this realism among philosophers of science, though doubtless modern mathematicians’ fondness for active diffeomorphisms (which seem to require mathematical haecceities) has also contributed.
Empirical Equivalence, Artificial Gauge Freedom and a Generalized Kretschmann Objection
It is not difﬁcult to formalize this argument and to prove that the existence of irre ﬂexi ve physical relations grounds the multiplicity of objects, without recourse to haecceities.
How Classical Particles Emerge From the Quantum World
It makes little sense to wonder whether Leibniz’s Principle is satis ﬁed by identical quantum particles, or whether t hey possess haecceities, if the existence itself of these particles has not been established.

Hence they do not possess the property of “being this very particle”, known to philosophers as “thisness” or “haecceity”.
