Rationis DefensorAgainst Advanced Modalizing

Rationis Defensor: Against Advanced Modalizing [I discuss a problem for modal realism raised by John Divers and others. I argue that the problem is real enough but that Divers’ “advanced modalising” solution is inadequate. The problem can only be solved by (1) holding that modal realism is only contingently true, (2) embracing a kind of Meinongianism about ontological commitment, or (3) abandoning the project of “analysing modality”.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[I discuss a problem for modal realism raised by John Divers and others. I argue that the problem is real enough but that Divers’ “advanced modalising” solution is inadequate. The problem can only be solved by (1) holding that modal realism is only contingently true, (2) embracing a kind of Meinongianism about ontological commitment, or (3) abandoning the project of “analysing modality”.]
