    ”According to Quine, what determines our ontological commitments – i.e., what really exists, by our lights? In answering this question do not just use a slogan, but explain it. Then explain Carnap’s reasons for thinking that such external questions are meaningless. Briefly explain how Quine and Carnap both agree and disagree over the ontological project.”
