Toward a Conceptualist Solution of the Grounding Problem

Noûs 45 (2):300-314 (2011)
Abstract
This paper defends a conceptualist answer to the question how objects come by their modal properties. It isolates the controversial metaphysical assumptions that are needed to get ontological conceptualism off the ground, outlines the conceptualist answer to the question and shows that conceptualism is not in as bad a shape as some critics have maintained.
