In this following context, what does the phrase ''as such'' mean? Does it mean ''therefore''or ''in itself''? Or does it refer something which is an antecedent?
Please, explain this to me...
What we call “chariot” has no existence apart from and independent of axle, wheels, shaft, etc. What we call “house” is merely a convenient name for stone, wood, iron, etc., put together after a certain fashion, so as to enclose a portion of space, but there is no separate house-entity as such in existence.
