But even if an object is in time and/or space, a definition by its parts would be senseless if it is an artefact which can only be understood by its purpose. So, for example, a chair has no necessary temporal or spatial parts, because its only necessary (and, thus, for a definition, decisive) quality is that it is a human artefact made for one person to sit on.
