It is briefly discussed here the problem of supraspecific categories. The Author thinks that they are not “products of our mind”, as it is commonly repeated, but that they rather reflect something happened in natural history, which designs, as far as we can presently understand, natural groups, something that unifies relationships or similarities among, say, fishes or among birds, that already exists in nature and that we need only to recognize.
