More on Putnam’s models: a reply to Belloti

Erkenntnis 67 (1):119-135 (2007)

Abstract

In an earlier paper, I claimed that one version of Putnam's model-theoretic argument against realism turned on a subtle, but philosophically significant, mathematical mistake. Recently, Luca Bellotti has criticized my argument for this claim. This paper responds to Bellotti's criticisms.
