Paper - Abstract

Paper Summary


Author’s Introduction

  1. So far Gideon Rosen's intriguing 'fictionalist' analysis of modality appears to have surmounted the problems that have been directed at it, by Rosen among others (see Rosen 1993 and Noonan 1994).
  2. I want to argue, however, that further reflection on a problem that Rosen himself raises in his original paper points to a difficulty which undermines the merits of Rosen's analysis.
