Author’s Abstract

  1. This article examines a popular complaint against the fictionalist account of possible objects bruited by Gideon Rosen. This is the complaint that modal fictionalism1 is, in some sense or other, hopelessly artificial.
  2. I shall separate two different strands to this worry and examine each in turn. As we shall see, neither strand to the objection is intractable.
