Author’s Introduction

    This note is to show that a well-known point about David Lewis’s (19861) modal2 realism applies to Timothy Williamson’s (19983; 20024) theory of necessary existents as well. Each theory, together with certain “recombination” principles, generates individuals too numerous to form a set.
