Koons provides in KR a welcome guide to our RTT, and he puts forward objections that deserve serious consideration. In this note we shall respond only to his principal objection.' This objection, which is developed on pp. 625 Ã¢â¬â 628 of KR, calls into question our main thesis. As we argue below, however, the objection is not successful.
