Philosophers Index Abstract

    An alleged refutation of modal1 realism by Tim Maudlin relies upon an 'Aristotelian' principle: whatever cannot be refuted is possibly true. If that principle is disambiguated in the way that meets the needs of Maudlin's argument, it will engender contradiction in all manner of theories of modality2, realist or not; wherefore it should be rejected.
