Two modal–isms: Fictionalism and ersatzism

Philosophical Perspectives 20 (1):77–94 (2006)
Abstract
It is sometimes said that no living philosopher is a genuine modal realist. This is no doubt an exaggeration. But at least this much is true: while we all partake of possible world talk when philosophizing, most of us regard this talk as incurring no commitment to a plurality of concrete worlds.
