Author’s Abstract

  1. In this paper, I will do two things.
    1. First (in section 1), I’ll develop a general strategy for constructing fictionalist views of controversial objects — e.g., abstract objects, composite objects, temporal objects, and so on.
    2. Second (in section 2), I’ll develop and motivate a special case of this general sort of view — namely, a fictionalism about coincident objects.
