Lewis and Blackburn on quasi-realism and fictionalism

Analysis 66 (4):315–319 (2006)
Abstract
Lewis has argued that quasi-realism is fictionalism. Blackburn denies this, offering reasons which rely on a descriptive reading of quasi-realism. This note offers a different, more general argument against Lewis's claim, available to prescriptive as well as descriptive quasi-realists.
